SCI and the Network for Social Justice are hosting a virtual career exploration panel series for middle and high school students as part of their Leaders for an Equitable Tomorrow (LET) program.
The next virtual panel in the series will focus on Nonprofits & Community Organizing. It will be held on Sunday, March 13th, from 1-2pm. The panelists will share information about how they got interested in working in the nonprofit sector, what working in this field is like, and what education and experience students might pursue if this line of work may be of interest to them.
The panel will include:
Marisa Luse, Campus Engagement & Collaboration Manager, Northeastern University
The first panel, held in February, focused on youth activism. One of the featured panelists was WMHS alum Sam Gerry, talking about his experience as a mental health advocate. Check out the video below for a short clip from the panel presentation, or you can watch the full recording on YouTube!
