As we get older, we quickly realize how much more career options the world has to offer than just jobs as a teacher, a firefighter or a doctor. At The Making Good Project's very first event, Doors Wide Open, all youth from ages 18-25 are invited to enjoy a day spent meeting some of the city's successful professionals and learn not only the details behind a wide range of different careers, but of the paths people took to get there as well.
In classic speed dating style, participants will spend the evening being paired up with mentors of all kinds of job titles from music agents to economists. Within only a few minutes shared with each mentor, feel enlightened and more driven than ever as they each share their personal career journey with you and most importantly, help you start your own.
To end a night of fascinating and beneficial conversations, participants will also be led in a mission session. This will round up all the event's shared passions and lessons learnt to teach the group how they can then put it all to use in the real world.
This is the best possible oppurtunity to:
-Get inspired! -Explore your interests and passions. -Learn the real details schools don't teach you about careers. -& Maybe even figure out what you want to for the rest of your life!
All you'll need to worry about bringing with you is an open mind, for this event is completely FREE!
The event is on January 24th. It will start at 4pm and end at 8pm and will take place at The Centre for Social Innovation at 720 Bathurst St.
