TRUE Change Core Programs

  • “Pull Up” Community Events | These events allow self-motivated teens to connect with young professionals in a casual and non-intimidating environment. Both young participants and parents will get a chance to learn about top-of-mind topics, develop networking skills, and build organic relationships in a low-risk environment.

  • Day in the Life | Participants will get a chance to have a one-on-one interview with a senior leader in the profession of their choice. Opportunities range from full-day shadowing to virtual coffee meetings and are created to give youth exposure and insight on how to reach their career goals.
