Career Day 2013

Over thirty professionals from a wide array of careers visited Flatbush on Thursday, April 25th with the goal of helping Flatbush students prepare for future success. Accomplished individuals from the fields of law, medicine, business, finance, the arts, mental health, technology, education, and construction shared their experience and wisdom in order to enlighten our high school students as to "what it takes" to succeed. Assistant Principal, Rabbi Joseph Beyda, challenged students to take this opportunity to "dream," and use the time spent with our guests to get inspiration and direction that they could carry with them for the rest of their lives. Students were enthralled by the presentations and put forward thoughtful questions for the professionals to address. Both students and professionals (many of whom are YOF alumni) walked away enriched by the experience. Special thanks to program coordinator Susan Kasavi (HS '11) for orchestrating the entire program with the assistance of Pathfinders director Shifra Hanon and faculty member Jaclyn Pahuskin.
