On May 31, The Foundling welcomed about 30 foster youth to discover their passions, talk to professionals, and start planning their future careers.
At the annual Career Night event, held at The Foundling’s headquarters in Manhattan, teens were able to bring their resumes, get feedback, ask questions, and talk to professionals in various fields about what they do.
Several companies had tables at Career Night, including the FDNY, WeWork, Megpies, UPS, Spotify, CodeGreen, The Ink Well Foundation, and Greenhouse. Individuals and volunteers from Haddad Brands, Kaltura, Fortress Investment Group, Educo Consulting, Medical Link, and UBS were present as well. Myriad fields were represented thanks to professionals in the nursing, law, and journalism professions who also sat down with the teens.
The evening ended with raffles of game systems, accessories and gift cards.
Thank you to our many volunteers for helping to make this event a success for yet another year!
