ACCELERATE YOUR PEOPLE SKILLS
The Adams County Commissioners’ Backpacks to Briefcases (B2B) exists to help high school students make a graceful transition into the real world of work or continuing education.
Rarely are any of us given the opportunity to be guided through the Do’s and Don’ts of life.
- B2B provides a unique tool-belt of How-To’s for life outside of school. The event is divided into workshops, networking, and a 3-course etiquette meal.
- Throughout the day, students discover how to network, how to dress for success and make positive first impressions. For many students, this is the first time they hear about earning power and goal setting. It may be their first opportunity to meet directly with professionals, too.
- Following the workshops, students are given an etiquette lesson over a 3-course meal. Meanwhile, business professionals host the tables and help students navigate expectations of the real-world-of-work.
