On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 80 professionals gathered to serve as facilitators at City Year Boston's 18 Minute Networking. At this annual event, over 35 companies and organizations came to speak with and recruit City Year AmeriCorps members. In addition, AmeriCorps members got the chance to connect with facilitators in their fields of professional/academic interest in three small-group sessions of 18 minutes each, and during a freeform networking period. It was a valuable opportunity for AmeriCorps members to practice their networking skills and make connections for their LACY(Leadership After City Year) plans with members of the community, including local City Year alumni (who comprised nearly half of the facilitators.)
Tom Reynolds, City Year AmeriCorps alumnus '06, '07, currently employeed at event sponsor Deloitte, speaks to AmeriCorps members & facilitators at 18 Minute Networking.
Thank you to the many people and organizations that helped make this event a success!
