For high school seniors, determining next steps after graduation can be challenging. Major decisions such as choosing to go to college or join the workforce lay ahead for the students. Fortunately, Ray Graham Association helps high school students with disabilities prepare for life after high school through its Professional Development Day. This event is geared towards students interested in continuing personal and professional growth or enhancing job seeking skills.
The seventh annual Professional Development Day was hosted at DePaul University’s Naperville Campus at the beginning of December. More than 50 students attended the event which focused on the job search, interviewing and how to be a successful employee. There was even a panel discussion featuring young adults who had successfully transitioned to adult life. Thank you to our presenters and all of the students and staff that attended the event. A special thank you goes out to the Rotary Club of Elmhurst for sponsoring this great day! Your support is greatly appreciated.
