Yavapai County residents are invited to attend the Pathways to Careers Exploratory Day on Friday, Feb. 10 at the Verde Valley campus in Clarkdale from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Building D—The Skilled Trades Center.

In partnership with the Arizona Community Foundation, Yavapai College will familiarize attendees with several of its academic degree and certificate programs, including Nursing, Agriculture, Culinary Arts, and Residential HVAC, Construction, Plumbing and Electrician.
