Career Readiness Academy 2019 – 2020

The Detroit Economic Club’s Career Readiness Academy is a 7-month program that brings high school and Young Leader (YLs) members together for monthly meetings that aim to teach skills that will help the students effectively navigate their high school journey to find greater success in the working world. The same team of YLs and students meet each month which not only provides the opportunity for more personalized attention but also forges important mentor-mentee relationships.

Stay tuned for session updates from the year!
