The Riverhead Central School District hosted a successful Career Exploration program as part of its Parent University initiative on Nov. 19.

During the event, students met with professionals in various fields to gain insight on a broad spectrum of career opportunities. They learned about the professionals’ schooling and the work they do on a daily basis. Career fields included law, journalism, business and finance, law enforcement, construction, art, design and advertising, technology, engineering, animal and environmental sciences, and health sciences.  

The Parent University series aims to connect parents with school and community resources and provide information related to challenges parents may face. Additional workshops and seminars featuring a variety of speakers are planned for later this school year.
