This workshop is all about bringing inspiring speakers and panelists to get our youth dreaming about their future careers!

 Young professionals from a wide array of careers will describe their choices and their paths to success in areas such as business, law, engineering, healthcare, and education. Through a panel discussion, the students are able to hear about different career options, as well as the road traveled by these young professionals. There will also be a representative from the military that will provide an alternative route to students considering such a choice, as well as give an overview of benefits of a future with the military. The workshop will wrap-up with group mentoring to allow for more personal interaction with our young professionals. The mentoring is intended to encourage the students to network and obtain knowledge about different careers. The goal is to really get the students thinking about their future!

 We hope to see you there!
