Atlanta Technical College hosts the Carolyn Young Mentor Walk on March 18. Now in its seventh year, the walk gives elementary, middle, and high school students an opportunity to explore a college campus and ask questions about the college experience. The day includes registration and breakfast, the walk, and sessions on storytelling and crafts, financial literacy, alliance leadership, and resumes for internships.
The age-specific skill building sessions and vocational modules give students hands-on understanding of possible future careers. Sessions designed for high school and middle school students cover career exploration and financial literacy. Elementary school students will explore careers through sessions on storytelling and crafts.
Adults attending the Mentor Walk will participate in panels with community leaders on the topic of education. The day ends with an Activity Fair including vendor and sponsor tables, backpack distribution, healthy living tips, T-shirt distribution, and more.
Hosted by the Campus Community Partnership Foundation (C2P), the Mentor Walk is free for all parents and students. C2P promotes partnerships between education and the community with a student-centered approach in learning, innovation, and social responsibility. Register your students via mentorwalk.org.
