In many communities children don't have positive role models in their community and are not aware of what they can achieve. The speaker series brings professionals into schools with hopes to inspire them to reach for the stars. Suggested for elementary school although suitable for middle and high school.
How it Works:
In a classroom setting, professionals (referred to as 'stars'), come and speak about their career. Unlike a typical Career Day this is very interactive and focuses on much more than the career itself but also to include: challenges faced and how they overcame them, available resources, required education, positive decision making, inspirational words of wisdom, and a context and real application to what they learn in school today.
