This week's elective!


Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 9:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m.

Generation Z and the World of Tomorrow


It is a whole new world out there and success starts here! Generation Z and our future are building a new and exciting lifestyle for themselves. Navigating this new frontier takes courage, fortitude, persistence, and courage. This fun, energetic and interactive session is designed to update parents about the 21st Century workplace needs of the employer and the future employability needs of their child (ren). Parents will walk away with a better understanding of how they can empower their child (ren) to be the very best they can be and to build the skill sets to “sell” themselves as the best “products” on the market for any and all employers in the world.
