| Free

You are invited to attend the Focus on Your Future College and Career Symposium on Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 9am-3pm at 5701 E. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

The College and Career Symposium is geared towards youth in grades 6-12 and their parents. Our goal is to encourage and support students to achieve academically and vocationally but with strength of character. We have planned a day full of enriching activities including: breakfast and lunch, keynote speakers, icebreakers, information sessions for student and parents, door prizes, and our innovative “Fast Track Career Fair.

What is a Fast Track Career Fair?

 Students will visit tables with a passport questionnaire and chat with professionals one on one in 5 minute intervals. This format is a quick and easy way to practice communication skills while learning about various career pathways.

The symposium will also showcase two exceptional keynote speakers. Lone Star College professor and Founding Executive Director of the nonprofit Making Awesome Things Happen (M.A.T.H.), Dr. Tarcia Hubert has been recognized by the White House for her STEM initiatives for underserved youth.  Dr. Hubert is sure to inspire as she addresses our youth on the topic of “Pursing Your Path with Passion and Purpose.”

Former NLF coach and Harvard Law School graduate, Daron K. Roberts is currently a professor and the Founding Director of the Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation at The University of Texas and best-selling author of the book Call An Audible. Daron will capstone the day by addressing youth on the topic, “No Such Luck: When Preparation Meets Opportunity”.
