I am always looking for ways to encourage young people to get out and make impact and JOY! Because, let’s be honest, we are only borrowing the world from future generations.


This Thursday I’ll be hosting a Networking opportunity (think mini-Rising Tides Connection Conference) for the high school students at a local high school!


The goal is to create a structured opportunity for students to practice their networking skills with community members and gain valuable career insight.


It has been such a great experience gathering community members to be part of three separate speed networking sessions.


Curious how it works? Here are some details:

· 150 or so students come to class during their assigned times (three different class blocks)

· The students are paired with community members to network and after 7-10 minutes, they rotate around the room to meet additional community members. It’s pretty amazing how a lifelong connection can form so quickly!

· Community members are given conversation topics to cover (i.e. share your career journey or what do you do each day) and a few questions to ask the students (i.e. what do you plan to do after high school?). The goal is for the sessions to be fun and interactive!


BIG Thanks to the Orbis at Ankeny Schools for making time for connection, You Have Good Ripple Effect!

Interested in joining us at a student networking event in the future? DM me and I will add you to the list!
