Priscilla commented on Solve4Work Club (final update) 27.02

Hi Isaac,
As a student I would have been motivated to be part of the club for the real-world experience that it would provide, I would be interested in learning how the community functioned and to start being an active member of the community. The service aspect would have also appealed to me, being able to do some social good. I would also have been motivated to join to see what industries are available and to know what future career paths I can take- which is why I think its great that you are opening the floor to all 'learners' instead of just college students.
I hope my answers are helpful!

Hi Joel,
This sounds like a fantastic idea. As a college student close to graduating, I wish i had more career clarity when I started out. I think the career coaches are an excellent idea, but I was wondering if you had thought about creating opportunities for the students to meet various individuals from a wide range of occupations- like an online professional speed-date or convention? Sometimes students get cornered into one career path before they've seen all the options.
I think this is a great plan and I wish you all the luck!

Hi Danyelle,
I think this is a great plan on how to ease K-12 students into the financial problems faced with being an 'adult'.
However, I was wondering how you were planning on incentivizing K-12 students into being involved with their finances? May i suggest that perhaps this program would be most welcome by 11-12 graders.
I was also wondering you what incentives you were planning on using for attracting the interest of businesses to be involved with K-12 students? Would this be a social good/service endeavor for them?
Being a college student now, I wish i had this opportunity when I was in high school. Best of luck!
