About the Program
Last week, East Bronx Academy (EBA) hosted their annual Career Day. The event was an opportunity for students to meet professional from various careers, engage in conversation, and learn first-hand the skills, work and education that is required to pursue each career. It was also an opportunity for the students to network and connect with these professionals with a possibility for summer employment, internships or volunteer work that could lead to endless options and opportunities.
Recent and former EBA graduates also participated in the day’s event as they shared their stories about life since they left East Bronx Academy. During the day, students cycled in and out of the fair and asked professionals about their favorite subjects when they were in school, their major, the college they attended, the degree(s) that they received, and the things they enjoy doing when they are not working.
The young men and women heard from an architect, a nurse, a lawyer, an athletics director for sports marketing, a writer & illustrator, a firefighter, an interior designer, a product trainer from Buick and GMC, an engineer, a gaming designer, a small business owner, a cosmetologist, a pastry chef and directors from NYC’s Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DOITT).
