Congratulations to our High School students who have spent the past couple of months learning about how to get a job as well as the important skills needed once they secure that job! With the help of some amazing guest speakers including entrepreneurs and business leaders, we have been teaching these students everything from how to search for their first job  to how to nail their first job interview . This past week, they each participated in mock interviews and did amazing! Leaders in the making!

 


STUDENTS TALK $$$ WITH PNC BANK

At Firewall, we are always striving for academic excellence and character development in our kids, and we believe in the significance of introducing practical life skills for success. So when PNC bank told us that they wanted to help our students and teach them how to save as well as the importance of money management, we were all for it! The kids were intrigued and had so many great questions for PNC representatives. It was truly an excellent learning experience. We look forward to building community partners like PNC Bank and others who care so much about the future of our youth.
