LA HS Boys/Advice Period Partnership
For four weeks in January, a group of high school students were selected to participate in a career-building unit with program partner AdvicePeriod.
This four week unit focused on the types of skills and experiences that students will need when applying and interviewing for a job. From expectations on professionalism to resume building, students learned from their AdvicePeriod mentors how to prepare for a job search.
The culminating project for the 2019 cohort was to deliver an “elevator pitch” about themselves, forcing each student to get outside of their comfort zone, and speak to a large crowd about their own personal achievements and qualities. Mentors and students stay in touch throughout the year, and the entire group will reconvene in May for the annual HL-LA/AdvicePeriod picnic and scrimmage.
