Career and College Connection Begins

It’s not easy to balance your senior year of high school, being a working professional, andplanning for the future, but our interns find a way! To support them, our programming team provides Career and College Connection (CCC) workshops focused on applying to colleges, planning financials, and more.

This month, our young professionals are thinking through their college options. Follow us on social media for updates on their progress!
