Youth Career Day

Launched in 2013, Youth Career Day exposes youth interested in pursuing a career in health care to diverse opportunities in the industry through realistic, interactive scenarios and simulations. Held at Kaiser Permanente’s Sidney Garfield Innovation Center, the event provides a detailed look at a wide range of health care settings, providing an experience that goes well beyond a typical job shadow experience.



“I learned that I am able to do plenty of other types of careers in healthcare that aren’t being a doctor or nurse.”


of student respondents agree/strongly agree that following Youth Career Day, they “have a better understanding of careers that are needed in various healthcare settings.”


Over a 2-day period for our 2018 event, we reached:

320 students and their teachers, representing
9 high schools and
4 community partners across
6 KP service areas


“What an opportunity to connect with high school students and highlight and expose the group to a variety of opportunities in the healthcare field.”
