My Life! My Plan! Gives High School Students a Head Start

On December 11, 2014, Milwaukee Public School held a My Life! My Plan! Workshop at Bradley Tech High School that focused on STEM careers—concentrating on manufacturing and engineering. NFPA members, Loretta Krenitsky of the Milwaukee School of Engineering, and I served as career coaches during the workshop. We were assigned 6-7 freshman high school students to mentor through a series of facilitated career-exploration and college-preparation activities. In the end, all of the coaches felt it was a very rewarding experience. It was a great way for these freshmen to really start thinking about careers, and to be able to interview us and various other community coaches about our job and how we got there.
