As in past years we have prepared a day full of interesting and educational activities designed to encourage Middle and High School youth, particularly those in 10th, 11th and 12th grades to consider their educational and career goals.
We will present panels of professionals representing a broad array of careers including law, business, architecture, medicine, ministry and technology. In addition professionals in the arts, media and government will interact with students and engage in dialogue to clarify myths and help students to examine all of their options.

NYC Lunar New Year Student's Day
Year of the Dog
Friday February 16th
Lincoln Center, Lobby of David Geffen Hall
This arts- and culture-filled day will also feature the NYC Lunar New Year Scroll, a unique collaborative art project inspired by China's most famous painting, Qingming Shanghe Tu. CAFA has created a 2'x40' base scroll depicting the 5 boroughs and notable landmarks, and the idea is for NYC students to populate the scroll with their own rendition of "life in NYC." The result will be a one-of-a-kind collage showcasing the beauty in their creativity and diversity. We've collected over 400 artworks so far from schools across the city. If your children haven't already participated, they can do so on the 16th, as well as enjoy other art, dance and music activities with our partners such as the NY Philharmonic, National Dance Institute, and the Lang Lang International Music Foundation.
