Page Connections is a professional development program aimed at connecting Page Scholars to professional mentors in the community to expand their network, provide information about internships and career opportunities, and access to soft-skills development alongside their college education. Many Page Scholars, over 30% who are First-Generation College Students, expressed concerned regarding securing meaningful employment after graduation. As the first in their families to pursue white-collar work, there is an absence of professional relationships and networks to help propel them into the career of their choice. Page Connections help Page Scholars to be successful and bridges the college to career leap.
The most popular event under Page Connections is the annual fall seminar where community professionals provide mentorship and organized professional development opportunities, such as workshops, informative panels, and career exploration sessions, to Page Scholars. This event also draws in elementary, middle schools, and community organizations serving K-8th grade children who take part in the Service to Children Fair. Please contact us if your company would like to sponsor our seminar or provide a professionally development workshop to help build our scholars’ soft skills.
