HOST A LEADERSHIP LUNCH
“Leadership Lunches” pair aspiring young people & business professionals for a 60-minute exchange of information. Youth explore career opportunities while the adults who host them meet bright, energetic youth who are engaged in C5’s innovative leadership program.
WHY HOST AN EXECUTIVE LUNCH?
- Because a brief investment of time yields enduring results.
- Executive Lunches help youth make informed career decisions by exposing them to career possibilities they may never have considered.
- 75% of C5 youth will be “1 st generation“ college students – neither parent has graduated from college. Executive lunches put them in contact with adults who can share new perspectives on career, education, and training.
- Opportunities to observe a variety of “corporate cultures” helps youth develop accurate expectations about what is expected in typical work-environments. It further helps them to set their career goals appropriately high.
- Youth leave your office with a better understanding of what it will take for them to one day return as a successful employee.
