This summer, 23 MHS and MNT high school seniors were invited to Austin Facebook's first "College Day".
Students spent a full day at Facebook's downtown Austin headquarters where they took a tour of the space and then sat down to work with Facebook college interns and employees for a full day of college and career workshops that covered everything from interview skills and resumes, to college essays and picking a school. Many of our students made strong connections with the Facebook interns and employees that were there that day, and now that their college interns have returned to school for the year, the Austin-based employees would like to continue mentoring our students throughout the college application process this year.
Manor GEAR UP will be teaming with Manor Mentors to facilitate this new mentoring opportunity between Facebook and our students. We are really excited about the possibilities this new friendship will bring!
