Planning is underway for the upcoming Exploration Academy career event for 9th grade students. 

On Monday, February 26th, Exploration Academy VI will take place at Wright State University, Lake Campus. 

Since 2012, the Village of New Bremen economic development office and Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce have partnered with the school guidance counselors in Minster, New Bremen and New Knoxville for this annual career event.

While nearly 40 professionals serve as presenters in this one-day career event, each student only hears from 6 presenters.  In preparation for this event, the students complete a career interest survey which will be submitted to the committee mid-January.  In the meantime the career speakers are being sought for the event.  The committee is fortunate that speakers from the previous years are typically willing to return. 

Each session is 20-minutes in length, during this time, the speaker discusses the education or training required of their profession, their working environment, the course of their work day, and the soft skills necessary for their job.

The offering of this event is made possible by the generous donations of our local organizations.
