About the Event
Bridge Builders to the New Generation professionals will create a platform for students to learn from their different approaches to and journey during life milestones. Professionals will go in-depth on what they “Wish [they] would have known” early-on when navigating systems of education, career, and life. The program will first start on the online platform, Instagram. Professionals are asked to record short videos on the knowledge they have acquired in the latter areas and wish they were made privy to during adolescents. Instagram will be used to post the messages. It is expected this program will consist of a 6-part series consisting of approximately 12 videos in the following subjects:
Series 1: K- 12 Education
Series 2: College
Series 3: Career
Series 4: Mental Health
Series 5: Adult Life
Series 6: Athletics
The videos will release every other day; Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Once the 6-part series of the 12 videos commence, professionals will then hold a Zoom youth hangout. It is planned to have guest speakers, and a round of trivia on Kahoot. The latter will give students the opportunity to meet other like-minded youth, and learn more by asking questions, and receiving feedback, in a safe space. Bridge Builders to the New Generation’s role in the series is to provide a platform where the next generation can obtain tools that mitigate barriers and ease the process of transitions to becoming a college student, professional, and self-sufficient adult.
