#LifeGoals2017 - Career Exploration Day for Youth in Foster Care

On August the 18th Catholic Guardian Services (CGS) hosted their inaugural Career Exploration Event for young men and women between the ages of 17 to 24 in our foster care programs. 

The event #LifeGoals2017 was held at the Bronx Zoo Schiff Family Great Hall.  The young people heard from inspiring and motivational speakers, who helped them design their vision and craft their career goals.  Additionally, we discovered their interests to connect them to customized resources and services. The event was attended by over 100 people.
