Students and their parents received guidance for high school and beyond thanks to the Project Next Step Conference and Resource Fair. 

The fair was Saturday, August 11, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the CSU Bakersfield Dore Theatre.

Kern High School District students and their parents attended targeted workshops intended to help students be successful in school and after graduation. 

 

Student workshops focused on a variety of topics, from A-G completion and college options, to peer pressure and leadership.

Parents were able to receive employment resources, scholarship help for their students, and how to facilitate healthy study habits. 

The event was hosted by the Kern High School District and made possible by the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and several local educational and community partners. 

23ABC's Feven Kay was the Mistress of Ceremony for the event.
