Exploring Possibilities is a series of “Career Days”, where professionals share their experiences and present their career to enlighten youth about the various paths they can take. Powerful Beyond Measure presents this event, each quarter, to expose youth to adults in 5-6 different professions. At lunchtime, the professionals come together to network with attendees. Additionally, each episode features: a workshop that incorporates the theme, a session on job/career preparedness, group panel about a particular industry or fun/creative activity for youth to enjoy.
Mission: To provide a vehicle for youth in the DC metro area to be exposed to various professions that may generate their interest, inspire them to create goals and guide them towards successful futures.
Purpose: Exploring Possibilities will show young people that exciting careers are within the scope of reality, by introducing them to professionals who are succeeding in various fields. The series will counter the limited scope of professional options youth may see, and open them to a myriad of occupations to pursue in the future. By showing them these possibilities, they will hopefully see a brighter future for themselves and make decisions that will propel them towards a professional goal.
Execution: For each Career Day, we invite 3-4 other youth non-profits or programs, to benefit from the information given. The non-profits chosen are based on their mission and activities, as it falls in line with the theme of the event. Other participants are welcome to come. The program is free to all participants. We also try to provide materials and giveaways for attendees.
