Many youth aren’t aware of the many career opportunities available to them. The connection between what they learn sitting in a classroom and the real world seems non-existent. You can bridge that gap.
Be a mentor and share your career expertise. Engage your mentee in setting and reaching their goals. And most importantly, be a friend and role model that opens a world of opportunities here in Central Iowa.
