Seeing is Believing Showcase




"Seeing Is Believing Career Showcase” which will recognize/showcase local professionals. This showcase will provide an introduction to some great careers and will provide a unique opportunity for our youth to see and hear professionals in their respective careers. In addition, they will also get an understanding of the work ethic, dedication, and educational background required to be successful. The show case will focus on providing our youth with a brief presentation where each professional guest will have 10 minutes on stage to share their unique journey/path, educational background, what they enjoy the most in regards to their current/past profession, and any obstacles they may have faced. Many young people see successful professionals, but truly don’t understand what it takes to get there. Hopefully this showcase will not only enlighten them, but empower and equip them to achieve their own personal goals.
