The Young Men’s Futures Symposium will take place December 16, 2013 at Millersville University. The Symposium is a full-day event for male sophomore/junior high school students who are considered to be in the academic middle of their class. The entire day is designed to open opportunities, encourage dreams, and build confidence within these young men through speakers, group activities, and networking with professionals like you.
We are currently looking for men to become involved in this day as a Symposium Facilitators & Symposium Mentors. It doesn’t matter what your profession, you are welcome and encouraged to sign up to help. In high school many of us were interested in professions that we might have never come close to actually doing.
Symposium Facilitators work with the 6, tenth and eleventh grade students at their table throughout the Symposium to guide and direct the activities and programs for the day. Facilitators are usually the first new contact the students make at the Symposium since the young men are seated at a table with students from every high school in Lancaster County. Time Commitment 7:30 am – 2:00 pm Mandatory training for all volunteers November 25th @ Scantron, Inc. in Columbia. (details provided in attached link)
Symposium Mentors meet with 2 tenth and/or eleventh grade students during the Mentoring Luncheon portion of the Symposium to guide, encourage and inspire the young men to achieve their goals. Note: It is not necessarily our goal to match mentors with students according to the students’ career interests, as there is much value in learning about other career opportunities not previously considered. Time commitment 11:45-12:45 Mandatory training for all volunteers November 25th @ Scantron, Inc. in Columbia. (details provided in attached link)

This is a photo of me and Isiah Talton at the 2011 Junior Achievement of Central PA Young Men’s Future Symposium. I had the pleasure to meet and have lunch with Isiah, who was a Junior at Lancaster Catholic High School at the time. A great young man who is getting ready to graduate from high school this year.
