May 27, 2021 (LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Green Dot Public Schools California, Dweebs Global, and Cross Country Education have partnered to host Green Dot’s annual Launch to College and Career sendoff for the Classes of 2021 for Green Dot’s 11 high schools. The event, which will be held virtually on May 28th, offers programming to support seniors finding success in college, career leadership, and life. This year’s event covers financial literacy, career development, and transition to college/military-specific guidance. The event’s workshops are comprised of speakers including Green Dot’s alumni, Dweebs Global’s Career Mentors, and college and community partners.
“We are thrilled to partner with Green Dot to make this event happen” says Janani Mohan, Executive Director of Dweebs Global. “This year, more than ever, students need guidance for their emotional, financial, college, and career paths. It is our pleasure to work with Green Dot in providing this for their seniors.”
Dweebs Global, an international nonprofit of over 500 volunteers in 35 countries who provide free mentorship relating to career development and mental health support, is leading the financial literacy seminar and inviting 20+ local business leaders to present about college and career journeys as well as meet students to potentially establish mentor/mentee relationships. Volunteers are from organizations including Boeing, Salvation Army, and Los Angeles County.
Cross Country Education is generously providing the platform on which this program will take place, SCHED.
“This event is really meaningful for our seniors,” says Theresa Asuncion, College & Career Success Coordinator at Green Dot. “Just before graduation, our seniors get another opportunity to learn skills, ask questions, and even meet mentors from local community leaders. We are very grateful to our partners and volunteers who make this event possible.”
