Last week, members of LEADERSHIP Philadelphia along with Wordsworth Academy alumni visited to present to our students about opportunities post-graduation. Representatives from the Philadelphia FBI, the U.S. Military, Comcast, Accenture and more discussed job requirements, workplace expectations, and the importance of professionalism in future careers. After the presentations, students were able to choose which organizations interested them the most by completing a survey.  Based on the results, students will visit participating work sites for further exploration. We are so proud to expose our students to a variety of careers in their communities and encourage them to seriously prepare for their futures as productive employees.

Thank you to the LEADERSHIP Philadelphia members and Wordsworth alumni who came to present and inspired our students!
