The Greater Binghamton Education Outreach Program, Broome-Tioga BOCES, Broome-Tioga Workforce, SUNY Broome Community College, Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce, and The Agency were thrilled to host SPARK, a career exploration experience for eighth grade students in our region.

The event was held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 22, 2020, on SUNY Broome’s campus. Throughout the course of the day, students will be able to interact with SUNY Broome faculty, BOCES Career and Technical Education teachers, and area employers to learn about the careers in our region and the educational and training pathways needed for success.
