This year we have many returning team members, along with new staff who are excited to expand and improve program offerings this year. So far, we have planned a career day full of a diverse group of panelists representing different career paths, scheduled several local college tours, and are already planning Halloween costume design celebration. This year we are also bringing back our Barbershop Academy program that provides students with free training workshops to learn the art of barbering.

Please feel free to reach out at any time! We have included our contact information below and look forward to being in touch throughout the year.

Sincerely,

Address: 120 W 30th St L, New York, NY 10001

Quarterly Update

As we kicked off the new school year, students were able to participate in our annual Career Day Event. During the day, students developed skills in workshops including, how present at networking opportunities, how to prep for an interview, and tips on how to sell their resumes. Following the workshops, students then attended a minimum of two panels representing all types of career paths including, entertainment, law, entrepreneurship, technology, education, sports and several others. During the networking lunch, students had an opportunity to converse with panelists that may have sparked interest during the panels. (Below is the link to Career Day at Satellite Academy)
