“Welcome Professionals” Series
We welcome professionals to speak about their jobs to scholarship recipients as well as to middle and high school youth who attend the NHA after school Learning Centers. This opportunity is informal – no PowerPoints or presentations needed! The NHA youth do not have a lot of interaction with professionals and exposure to a variety of career paths is important. Past speakers include professionals in finance, law enforcement and the medical fields.
In order to put their classroom lessons to practical use, our scholarship recipients need hands-on opportunities to learn from so they are career ready when they graduate. We are looking for short-term or summer internship opportunities. This partnership will not only strengthen our students but also Norwalk, the community, and the region.
If you know a student living in Norwalk Housing Authority who is interested in or eligible for any of our programs, contact Kim Hein.
