This summer more than 100 students from throughout Union County completed the three-week program which offers teens in grades 8 through 12 opportunities to explore a variety of career choices while experiencing life on a college campus. Since the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders launched the program in 2002, more than 600 Union County students have completed College for Teens.
