November 2. 2017- Berry Fall Career Exploration

This was another empowering, transformational event!! We were able to #bedifferencemakers and help the future of our community how important technology is and how they can use just their current knowledge to have a successful career and possible start their own business.

Students got chance to meet Career mentors/professionals from over 15 different industries and learn about what kind of professions are out there/what do these professionals do/ what kind of preparation is needed to pursue that career and what may be some resources out there to get started.


We brought together several local Grassroots organizations along with several social entrepreneurs, #differencemakers together to brainstorm and combine their efforts to work together which is called collaboration in our community.   PEEP, CollabCharlotte, GEMZ, AmeriCorps and others.
