Description: 

Previously known as the “Do You” Youth Development Conference, “Navigating Career Choices” is an opportunity for youth in grades 6-12 to gain insight on how to prepare for the college application process. Volunteers willl guide students through exercises and workshops that can help them achieve success in post-secondary education.

Student participants will have the opportunity to meet and work with leaders in the community from different industries while gaining skills that enhance their toolbox for post-secondary success.

Alumni volunteers will serve as panel members or as workshop facilitators on topics ranging from being your authentic self, the college application process and career development. Through these efforts, “Do You” volunteers will share their experiences while serving as mentors for youth in their community. This event is organized through a partnership between the Yale Black Alumni Association and the Stanford Black Alumni Association.
