Saipan Chamber High School Workshop

On Saturday, the Saipan Chamber Education Committee hosted the "I'm Graduating Soon... Now What?" workshop at Saipan Southern High School where approximately40 students participated. This is our second year of teaching the island's high school juniors and seniors about preparing for life after graduation.

We always feel welcomed at Southern High. The students show up on time and they are genuinely interested in what we have to say. It's a pleasure visiting their campus and meeting their students.

We led the students through several presentations, each focusing on specific issues from personality types for jobs, interviewing, budgeting, balancing family & work time and communication.

Thank you to all the students for showing up on a Saturday and taking the time to care about their futures!
