With so many young men under-employed these days it’s tough for them to find work that will fulfil their long-term career needs. Part of the solution could be adult role models who are willing to share their career pathways, encourage positive self-esteem and bolster their aspirations.
To help strengthen the established culture of mentorship in Halton, the Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) will host the fourth annual Men as Career Coaches (MACC) event on Thursday, April 18 at the Burlington Convention Centre. Registration and dinner will begin at 5:15 p.m, with the program set to run from 6 to 9 p.m.
Past MACC attendees have raved about the lasting impact of attending and interacting with different generations. The event has been called educational, inspirational and even life-changing.
“Before coming here, I didn’t know what to expect. After this, I honestly think it was one of the best experiences of my life,” said one student after the 2012 event.
MACC is open to all male high school students and all male community members. MACC and its sister event Women as Career Coaches are both dedicated to building a culture of mentorship that will have lasting impact in Halton.
HIEC is putting the call out to our community to register as a career coach and join our Community Challenge by contributing to this event as a sponsor or donor. Sponsorship opportunities start at just $30. These programs rely on financial support from community members and businesses that are passionate about the proven power of mentorship.
