(Miami, FL November 2, 2015) – Consistent with the goals of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative, the City of Miami will participate in the College Application Week. This is a nationwide event consistent in helping senior high school students search and apply for college. At the local level, the City has partnered with Florida College Access Network to organize the event at the public high schools within the City.
As a kick-off event to start the College Application week, the City of Miami, with the collaboration of Miami Dade College (MDC), Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS), Catalyst Miami, Public Allies Miami, and AmeriCorps, will prepare a Career Expo to take place at the cafeteria of Booker T. Washington Senior High School, 1200 NW 6th Ave, Miami, FL 33136 on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.
The main purpose of this exposition is to motivate senior students for whom going to college is not within their current plans. Exposing those students to MDC programs that would prepare them for appealing-to-youth careers in only two years, or even providing them with a certificate within a shorter period of time, would be the first step of an inspiring process. The motivation would be emphasized when participating representatives of local industries offer students a panoramic view of the real world companies for which degrees and certificates like those that can be earned at MDC are required.
