Yuma ABEC Summer Camp

Yuma ABEC Summer Camp

The Southwest Technical District of Yuma (STEDY), University of Arizona - Yuma and Yuma Arizona Business and Education Coalition (ABEC) hosted a career exploration summer camp for students from five school districts in Yuma County. The students spent a week rotating through career pathways such as Agriculture, Medical Assistance, Engineering/Artificial Intelligence, Animation and more. Plus, each rotation included hands-on, real-world experiences like flying drones, suturing bananas and programming robots.

This year, AZ OnTrack funding helped Yuma ABEC expand their current middle school career exploration program to even more students. With strong partnerships, curriculum and mentorships, the program is designed to help younger students learn about possible careers and inspire successful entry into the workforce. Congratulations to everyone for an amazing and impactful Summer!
