Teenagers and young adults involved with The Foundling’s foster care programs, supportive housing services and our preventative programs were invited to WeWork on April 28 for a special “Career Night” event. Attendees had the opportunity to network and ask questions about different career fields and industries. Additionally, the teens and young adults who attended Career Night received personalized tips for building their resumes and could participate in mock job interviews.
Though many of the youth were at different places in their education and career experiences, Career Night was the perfect event to test the waters and see what the future has to offer.
Crave It, Big East Conference, Big Picture Photo Booth, CBS News, COFFEED, Columbia University, Condon & Forsyth LLP, Educo, Fire Department of New York, Flamingo Group, Greenhouse, Haddad, LinkedIn, Morgan Stanley, NoMad Hotel, the Foundling’s Crisis Nursery, the New York Police Department, the New York Police Department Cadet Corps Program, Paul Andrew, PwC, Third Bridge, UPS, and WeWork were among the many volunteers who passionately informed our adolescents about the many wonderful opportunities ahead of them and how they absolutely have the power to achieve their goals.
