FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 21, 2019
Career Day Inc. recently received a $2,500 grant from Investors Foundation. The grant will help further Career Day Inc.’s mission of fostering the confidence, focusing the direction and inspiring high school students through small group interactions with a diverse group of professionals who share information about their life experiences, education and careers.
By working in partnership with a variety of professionals and school staff, Career Day Inc.’s program creates an atmosphere of acceptance and career opportunity for all students at every academic level. Career Day Inc. highlights the importance of setting goals and using education to achieve one’s aspirations by providing a forum for every student to feel valued and more confident.
During one presentation, Beth Bucheister, Executive Director of Career Day Inc., quoted the philosopher Voltaire who said, “I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way.” Ms. Bucheister wants high school students to adapt this philosophy by understanding that they don’t need to know the end goal today, they just have to take a first step. Opening one’s eyes and truly understanding the experiences of others is a great way forward.
