Belleville New Tech Sophomores in Economics and Literature launched a new project at the end of January. The project is called “Living The Dream.” It is designed to engage students in planning for the realities of their future.
In this project BNT students will prepare for their future by:
- creating a financial plan based on their potential dream career and back up career
- writing a paper including research on their college and career opportunities
- participating in a mock interview with community members
- introducing us to the adult they will become at the mock “BNT class of 2015 fifteen year reunion”
We are in need of parents and community members to help make this project be the best that it can be. We are looking for people to speak to our students about their careers and the path they took to get there. The more diverse panel of career fields, the better. We also would like as many people as possible to help us conduct mock interviews. We would like our students to experience the interview process when the stakes are not high.
Ideally, if your workplace is open to having Belleville New Tech students job shadow or intern, we could make this project even more meaningful. Our students are yearning to experience the workforce in any way that they can.
If you would like to get involved by speaking to our classes about your career path, helping with mock interviews, or allowing a student to shadow you, please contact us by email.
We look forward to building a relationship with the community that will best prepare our students for the future.
