ICC-ITA Head Start Speaker Series, June 25th
ICC/ITA Head Start Speaker Series Session V:
The ITA & ICC are co-sponsoring a monthly speaker series for community youth focused on enhancing their professional and academic knowledge. Our goal is to create a forum where the next generation can benefit from the experiences, relationships, and mentorship of successful individuals. Once a month we will have speakers that present on a specific topic or discuss their career path. The speakers will be individuals of diverse backgrounds that are interested in serving as mentors and advisors. We hope that this information transfer and mentor relationships will help them make better career decisions.
