UNH's Junior Board took part in a career panel for young people at UNH Member Henry Street Settlement (HSS) on March 2nd. UNH Board member Nelson Hioe expressed the purpose of the panel best when he said, "Life is a lot harder when you walk alone."
The goal was to connect young people enrolled in HSS programs with successful young adults who might be able to offer advice or constructive assistance along their paths to adulthood. "College is your silver bullet," Ramik Williams told the group as he shared his own experience of being the first person from his family to graduate from college.
The Junior Board will be holding similar career panels for young people at other UNH Member agencies. If you are interested in joining a panel or learning more about the Junior Board, please reach out to Jesel Roosevelt at firstname.lastname@example.org
