is consistently pushing the envelope! Check out our Press Coverage!!!
This program was put in place to help train children and ensure them when it comes to interacting with the groups and professionals that attend the: Future Builders Scholarship and Career Planning Fair as well as Trades University Skilled Trades and Specialty Fair. After surveying our presenters at the events, the one item that became a consistent concern was the children way of interacting with the opportunities.
You find that children when faced with an unfamiliar face and or situation, they tend to either clam up or act out. We found that because of this dampener, we had children who don’t make the most out of the moment. Frankly speaking, if a child doesn’t know….They just don’t know. This program helps them to know and understand. It gives them structure in their approach and locks them in on specifics. It is geared to help them maximize their potential through this engagement.
