CED is the largest College & Education Day in the Nation that provides opportunity for thousands of youth in our city to learn about career opportunities. The annual HHF CED is the Forum’s signature event with ~15, 000 attendees expected including students, parents, volunteers and speakers. The panel sessions are the heart of the day’s activities in which parents and students learn about career options and college information. This year, based on the feedback from students and attendees, and with your help, we plan on making panel sessions more interactive. We hope that you are able to participate and join us to make CED 2019 the best one yet!
