Press release from CANI:
CANI seeking students for career shadow day
CANI (Community Action of Northeast Indiana) is seeking low-income middle-school students (2010-11 school year) for participation in a career shadow day, as part of the agency’s newly established youth program.
CANI has recently expanded its outreach services with the establishment of a youth program. The purpose of the career shadow day is to expose local students ages 13 to 15 to various career opportunities.
CANI will act as a liaison between the mentor and the student. The coordinator will meet with students prior to the start of the program, which begins in late June, to help determine a suitable career to shadow.
This is a great opportunity to empower your child and expose him or her to the work place. Participants must be at 200 percent of poverty or below. Additionally, participants will have first priority for CANI’s IDA (Individual Development Account) program, which can help fund college expenses.
Referrals will be accepted through March 9. For more information, or to refer a student, please call Megan Kinney at (260) 423-3546 ext. 287, or.
CANI helps communities, families, and individuals remove the causes and conditions of poverty. For more information about CANI and the services provided, see www.canihelp.org.
