This webinar is for:

  • WNY area parents of teenagers who are concerned that their upcoming investment in their child's education is going to be largely wasted because their child hasn't found their inspiration & purpose prior to going off to college or another post high school program.
  • WNY area businesses who want to participate in an experiential learning program to attract future talent & foster community while helping our youth gain valuable insight and experience.

In this webinar, you will learn how you can provide teenagers a way to learn about what different companies in the WNY area do, what positions they have available, and what “a day in the life" looks like for their employees so that your children develop a better idea of what they want to do for a career. "Life Trip" is a Hands-on experiential learning program, designed to give High school students an introduction to self-awareness & exposure to 25-30 different companies/organizations, followed up by job shadowing & Nano/Micro Internships.

  • Has your child figured out what they are passionate about & want to do for their career
