This year's Career AG-xploration event will be held on May 4, 2024 at the Muskegon Farmers Market from 9 am -1 pm.

   

Career AG-xploration is a unique opportunity to talk to students and their families at the same time. Your participation will give them exposure to the vital world of agriculture and food processing in a fun and interactive way. Becoming a presenter for this year’s event will enable you to impact the lives of an entire classroom of students.  

  

When you register to become an Employer Presenter, we will assist in you coordinating your experience, which includes discussing activities to showcase, tips on engaging with students and their families, and more.
