This was the first Career Jam, sponsored by the Saratoga-Warren-Washington Workforce Development Board, along with the WSWHE BOCES, and the Saratoga County Economic Development Corporation.  ACS students enjoyed the learning opportunities set up at each station, and learning about the many career choices available in our area.
