About this Event

At this event, four workshops will focus on personal and professional development where participants will have connected learning experiences and interact with their peers and mentor. Participants will register and participate in one of the following workshops: Public Speaking, Social Media, Negotiation, and Finances. Every workshop will provide an interactive opportunity for participants to learn and speak within groups for optimal confidence building when it comes to planning for their education and/or career path. This event will feature keynote speakers Andrea Herrera the Seattle Police Department Field Training Coordinator, and Debra Sutey the Seattle Fire Department Battalion Chief. We will provide 50 mentors/coaches who will hold one-on-one conversations about career, college preparedness, and cultivating leadership. The students will have opportunities to meet one-on-one with mentors and be encouraged to visit all booths of featured employers, sponsors, and programs. Students will be able to sign up with job providers where they can learn about current and future employment opportunities. Interview coaches will challenge student’s critical and creative thinking ability as well as on the spot decision making.
