Hundreds of high school students had a chance to explore future opportunities.
 
On Tuesday (May 1), the Fort Saskatchewan High School gymnasium was set up with nearly 20 vendors for the 11th annual Youth Career Expo.
 
The event is put on by the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce and Careers Under Construction (CUC).
 
"We had colleges and universities here, we have different companies here highlighting the different careers they're offering. Everything from trades booths to EPS, military and RCMP," said CUC program manager Tanya Shewchuk. "It's been a really great partnership for just allowing the students to experience what is out there for them."
 
Over 500 teenagers stopped by the expo.
 
Students from Fort High, St. John Paul II High School, Next Step Outreach and Careers In Transition attended the event.
