I am a senior executive with the Boy Scouts of America and work as the Director of
Workforce Development for all of Northeast Ohio. Our program is called Exploring and is available to co-ed youth ages 11-21.
We work with businesses and schools to establish a mentorship program where adults can
showcase their place of business and youth can participate in hands on acitivities in the career of their choice.
Most groups meet twice a month.
We have active posts in law enforcement, fire and ems, architecture, engineering, plumbing etc.
By doing this we create an employee pipeline for companies as well as give youth a chance to learn about a career and what training is required. We often do trainings on resume building, social skills, etc.
I am married with four adult children. In my free time I like to play competetive tennis, write personal essays and garden.
