About the event
Calling all recent first-generation BIPOC 2020 college graduates wanting to work with a career coach!
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a difficult year. For many of you - if not all - you did not get to experience the walk across the stage and be handed your diploma. You may not have been able to take full advantage of your campus career center, guidance counselors, or on-site career fairs due to campus-wide closures. And, yet the expectation and need to secure employment is still there.
As a result, the Flourish Collective, a nonprofit committed to supporting BIPOC organizations and learning about social justice, is offering full scholarships for 6 first-generation BIPOC college graduates (valued at $1997) to participate in and work with career coach, Yanira Guzmán, The Career Gem, Own Your Expertise (OYE) Career Preparation Program: College Edition!
All you need to do is apply by Friday, December 18th, 2020 for your chance to participate in the program! Apply today!
