Youth Career Day is taking place on September 24 and 25, 2019 from 8:30am to 3:00pm at the Garfield Center in San Leandro. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be served. This event exposes youth interested in pursuing a career in health care to diverse opportunities in the industry through realistic, interactive scenarios and simulations. Held at Kaiser Permanente’s Sidney Garfield Innovation Center, the event provides a detailed look at a wide range of health care settings, providing an experience that goes well beyond a typical job shadow experience. Kaiser Permanente's Nurse Scholars Academy is focused on current as well as anticipated healthcare professions identified as in demand in Northern CA, including mental health, home health, operating room, maternal child health and clinic roles.
Youth participants: high school juniors and seniors from health career academies, as well as youth aged 16-22 from underserved areas are encouraged to attend.
