Being the example our next generation can look up to.
Our Professional Growth Committee has partnered with the Rochester Public Schools to bring incredible value to our city's high school students. We organize and execute career panels, classroom speakers, 8-week programs and work with students on soft skills - mock interviews, resume building and more. Young professionals are able to relate to these students and help them avoid making the same mistakes that we have already experienced.
Often when we go into these classrooms and ask the kids what they want to be when they grow up, it is overwhelmingly a nurse or a doctor. While some of these students will thrive in those career paths, there is a lack of knowledge on what else is out there for them. We bring in a diverse group of professionals to share their careers, experiences and story to bring more options and inspiration to these kids lives.
