Mendez Highschool Career Day
Time and Location
About the Event
Dear Esteemed Profesional,
The Promesa Boyle Height Collaborative and Mendez High School for College & Career Prep are hosting their Annual Career Day on Thursday, March 22, 2018. We aim to provide critical career information to empower youth and their families to reach their dreams of becoming professionals. What better way to learn about careers that they aspire to than from the people living them? For this reason, we invite you to be a guest panelist to talk about your profession and the journey that made it possible.
Based on our surveys, your profession was identified as a high-interest career by the students at Mendez High School. We invite you to join other panelists to speak in two sessions that will run for (40) minutes each and will focus on careers in your respective area. The event will be “conference style” where students select up to two sessions from about (38) concurrent sessions. Each professional will be paired with at least one more professional and a lead teacher that will facilitate the panel discussion.
