Life is enriched by informed career decisions. Communities have the human assets to help young people make more informed decisions. Our mission is to help communities enrich the career lives of young people.
What We Do
The Harraseeket Foundation has created a program called “Pathways.” Pathways empowers communities to help their younger members make more informed career decisions.
Meet a Mentor
Some of the mentors in the Immanuel Presbyterian Church Pathways program are sharing the stories of their career paths. Here is one mentor’s story of how she became a small business owner and what landscape design means to her.
We look forward to sharing more of these stories in the coming weeks.
I have had a great experience with Pathways. The connections I’ve made have helped me explore job opportunities, feel more confident in my abilities, and think about my career from a fresh perspective.
My experience with Pathways has been much more than traditional mentoring — I call it conversing and sharing. We don’t know where it goes but the journey is rewarding so far. It affirms my long-held view of Immanuel as a family.
Through our conversation I was able to use my experience to help (seeker) see the patterns in her own life that pointed to why she truly enjoys and the types of roles that she might find most fulfilling.
My connection with [my mentor] was very successful! Through him I got to meet with three program leads at the National Academy of Sciences. Including the head of the new Climate Change program they are trying to set up. They said that I might be able to find a position open over this summer, and if that happens then I have a good chance to land it since I got my foot in the door way ahead of time. Thanks so much for the connection.
