TODAY'S THEME IS
#LeadYourCommunity

Today is all about building a better community. Introduce students to community-oriented work or connect them to leadership opportunities in their neighborhoods and outside of the classroom.

THREE WAYS YOU CAN PARTICIPATE TODAY

1) Attend our DiscoverU 2018 Celebration tonight, Oct. 12, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at the Tukwila Community Center! There will be a free multicultural dinner, powerful youth performances, and resources for college and career exploration. All families are welcome! 



2)  Share the  youthprogramdirectory.org , a comprehensive way to find engaging programs in King County, with students or on social media. 

3)  If you were involved in the community in high school, how did that experience impact your career pathway? Share your answer with students or post it on social media using the hashtag  #LeadYourCommunity

PATHWAYS BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL

Each day this week, we'll share #beyondhighschool journeys of local alumni, plus their expert insights about exploring college and career opportunities! Consider sharing these printable pages with your students each day of DiscoverU: Lead Your Community Day insights and more stories from former students.


ANAM'S ADVICE FOR STUDENTS:

" DO WHAT YOU LOVE! Don't chase the money; chase your heart. You don't want to study for four years and then come to find out your job is 'boring.' Volunteer a lot so you know where you fit in and what you like doing."

SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDES:

DiscoverU encourages our community to come together and promote college and career exploration for the region's youth. Teachers, school staff, and community partners lead fun and engaging activities in school and the community that help students think about their futures. DiscoverU puts student interests at the center and helps connect their aspirations with the many pathways to get there.
