“Introducing our students to a wealth of careers is a vision we feel that will help inspire our students to succeed in life and follow their dreams,” said Zachary.
Sammy Fields from Hot 97, Bobby Banks from Keynote Music School, The NYC Fire Department, The NYC Police Department, nurses, an aspiring rapper, a gymnast, chefs, accountants, business owners were among the many volunteers who donated their time to introduce their careers to students from pre-K through eighth grade.
Speakers also included Pastor Medlin of the First Congregational Church as well as representatives from local political offices.
A committee of staff members, coordinated by Ms. Luciano and Ms. Campbell, encouraged the guests to speak to students about how to achieve future goals. They also discussed some of the obstacles they faced as children, and how they overcame them in order to be productive members of society.
According to middle school students, career day inspires them to seriously think about what careers they might pursue in the future and what grades they need in order to pursue their dreams. The students not only received inspiration and direction from the speakers, they also received answers about what it takes to pursue specific careers.
