On December 18th, a group of 10 young women went on a College & Career field trip to Education First and Harvard Graduate School of Education in a collaboration with St. Stephen's Youth Programs and The Validation Project.
The field trip started off with a tour of Education First led by female employees and a mock focus group workshop surrounding what the teens are hoping to do in the future. The teens learned about how focus groups serve researchers.
After the focus group Education First threw a pizza party for the teens where they voiced their fears and excitement for the future.
After our networking dinner we headed over to Harvard for a panel with current students about their educational and professional paths. Thank you to The Validation Project for helping us create a space to empower young women!
