ROCHESTER, N.Y. Operation GO hosted a Youth Entrepreneurship Expo on Saturday to showcase its students’ work this summer.

That organization is an after-school program that teaches about careers and trades that aren’t typically discussed in school.

Its goal is to let students sample careers to see what they may want to end up doing after high school graduation.

“When they come here they’re creating,” said Operation GO CEO and founder Justin Ortiz . “They’re creating sneakers, they’re creating clothing lines, they’re creating social media brand development, they’re creating their own music. And so these are things that are not normally seen in school and so we want to extend our services really to the community and make sure our students are prepared.”
