Workplace Mentoring

Starting in March, AALEAD teamed up with IBM to host a 5-class workplace mentoring pilot program. 10 of our MD high schoolers signed up to be testers for the program, and were matched with IBM employees from across the DC region. This Thursday, May 6, we will celebrate its completion by talking about internships and job shadowing (and having a small party)! Other topics we covered were how to create a résumé, interview skills, and workplace ethics.

Look for a workplace mentoring video, edited by one of our high school participants, soon to come! In the meantime, here are some pictures of our pairs deep in conversation.
