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!
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."
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.
