The 2010 Albuquerque EYH conference features two adult programs held in parallel with the student career workshops. Both programs begin with the Keynote Event, a panel discussion featuring four dynamic young women who have chosen a technical career field, which the students also attend. Then the the programs separate into a for-credit course targeting Educators and Counselors, and a more informal program targeting Parents and other adults who accompany students to EYH. Both Programs re-join the students for the Closing Session. Participation by accompanying adults in either of these adult programs is optional, but registration ($5) is required for those who wish to attend, and accompanying adults are not permitted to attend the Student Workshops.
