#YPAMA

Help us inspire the next generation of leaders through #YPAMA

Inspired by the popular “Ask Me Anything” posts on social media, CYP’s #YPAMA will allow students an unfiltered look at what today’s young professionals wish they had known when they were in their shoes. Through CYP’s partnership with Charleston Metro Chamber’s Career Academies, #YPAMA will position members of CYP in area high schools to facilitate quarterly panels that allow young professionals to share their professional journeys with students in the hopes of inspiring this generation of future leaders.

Career Academies are career-themed schools within high schools, in which the learning environment reflects the atmosphere and expectations of the 21st century workplace. Today, Career Academies are available in high schools throughout the region in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, Business and IT, Culinary/Hospitality and Health sciences.

Panelist information:

  • Panelists should be young professionals currently working throughout the region in in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, Business and IT, Culinary/Hospitality and Health sciences
  • The time commitment is approximately two hours (includes travel time, panel discussion and post panel activities with the students)

Panel questions include:

  • Share your career path story
  • What do you wish you would’ve done differently in high school?
  • What habits can students adopt today that will benefit them three years from now?

 #YPAMA 2018 Dates TBA

All #YPAMA panels begin at 9 a.m. and last for 45 minutes
