Teens learn about engineering at SSI
Thank you for your support this past summer!
Thanks to your donation, Career Club teens participated in many activities this past summer that helped them discover their talents, explore careers, and gain skills that they need to succeed.
Starting in June, the Summer Career Club teens went on summer site visits to businesses located in the Portland Metro Area, participated in skills building activities, engaged in informational interviews, and met one-on-one with caring adult advisors; all which helped them develop their skills and plan for their futures. Thank you for helping provide this opportunity for them!
You can see photos of the visits to Nike, Intel, Bob's Red Mill, and more on our Facebook page or hear what 3 teens had to say about their site visit to Nike on Youtube.
As we head into fall, it becomes even more important for teens to have access to the support, career advice, and skills training that they receive through Career Club. With so many teens in danger of dropping out, connecting them to real life careers, and showing them how they will use their education in the workplace, is vital to ensuring they remain in school and achieve their career and college goals.
You can continue to help provide this connection by donating now! It costs $500 for a teen to participate in the year-round Career Club, and with your donation, you help keep it free for the teens we serve. Thank you!
