New Berlin Elementary Students Jump into Their Future

On Thursday, March 24, students from New Berlin's Ronald Reagan Elementary School participated in JA Jump into Your Future. Students were given the opportunity to interact with professionals from a variety of careers, including a Navy pilot, dietitian, fire fighter, chef, truck driver, and more. Business and community professionals volunteered to serve as guest presenters in the classrooms to discuss and demonstrate aspects of their careers and their journey towards that career.

Each professional presentation included an explanation of the volunteer’s career path, personal stories of interest to elementary students, hands on activities that reinforced information about the presenters career path, educational decisions, the joys and frustrations of the career field, and the relevance of their classroom learning to the world of work.

A big thanks to BuySeasons for providing costumes for the students at the event!

Check out the gallery of photos below to see what the students were able to experience.
