The Hofstra University Precollegiate Career Discovery Institute Saturday Classes is a brand-new program from Hofstra Continuing Education that lets teens explore their passions and interests – and discover new ones – as they prepare for college and beyond. These interactive, hands-on classes and workshops, taught mainly by Hofstra professors, help teens plan for college and their future careers.

  • Offer students in our summer precollegiate programs and Saturday Classes for Young People a place to continue gaining valuable skills.
  • Help expose teens to potential careers.
