Crosswalk Career Connections’ first day of class started Wednesday, January 8, there was a bustle of excited faces, ready to learn about career options. This course is being led by Ms. Molly Wilson, longtime mentor at Crosswalk. Twelve teens crowded into the classroom to share pizza, receive folders full of career information, and learn from Ms. Molly about what the course will entail. A majority of the teens were girls, excited to hear from successful women leaders from various careers. Crosswalk Career Connections has been able to schedule 20 women leaders to speak about career options for young women. If you would like to help sponsor this course or support Crosswalk Teen Center, please email Nathan@crosswalkteencenter.org, stop by Crosswalk, or visit our website at www.crosswalkteencenter.org.
Teens have been excitedly anticipating our second class this week, as we have guest speaker Ms. Capri Brown Dickson from a Charlotte business, the Groomery. Teens will learn from Ms. Capri about grooming pets, running a local business, and what it takes to be successful in the pet grooming trade.
We are also very excited about these upcoming speakers this month: Jan 22nd- Ms. Abby Halstead, will be talking about being a teacher. Jan 29th- Ms. Becky Dolman, will be talking about being an elected official. These speakers will present about their career path, the education required, the opportunities in the field, and the income potential for these careers.
