March 16-18, 2018 (All day)
In March, join the LightHouse Youth Employment Series, YES, workshop focusing on the impact of networking and building both personal and professional connections. YES workshops are monthly weekend-long learning experiences emphasizing the vocational enrichment of low vision and blind youth, increasing and providing access to a multifaceted array of mentorship, employment readiness skills, and alternative accessible techniques. Learn the essentials of networking and apply your knowledge at the YES Mingling Mixer!
The YES Workshop in March will provides students with a space to discuss the meaning of networking, enhance their personal understanding of various types of networks from personal to professional, as well as encourage youth to grow and develop their own web of support. The weekend is spent learning from blind and low vision mentors and engaging in creative hands-on activities which further support youth to explore and achieve their individualized and professional goals.
