Our Elevating Teens committee has made many exciting changes over the last few years. Applying an entirely new model, the committee was fortunate to develop a new partnership with JAG, Jobs for America’s Graduates. Throughout the year, Elevate visits classrooms and works with students from several public high schools in a dynamic way. The committee helps host several job readiness events, including job and career fairs, information panels featuring employers, and even etiquette luncheons.
In our 2017-2018 League year, the Elevating Teens committee worked with JAG to host their annual Career Development Conference. Working with students from all over the state of Nevada, Elevate was able to assist in many areas, including coordinating a public speaking workshop, judging an entrepreneurship competition, and facilitating mock interviews with a group of 250+ extremely bright, dedicated students. We look forward to sharing more about what our members have accomplished this year – stay tuned!
