LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Suits for Seniors, a local nonprofit organization serving under-resourced high school youth throughout Palm Beach County, is hosting its first annual “Hunger Games Executive Edition” fundraiser.
Suits for Seniors hosts a 6 to 8 week program that teaches high school seniors important lessons to prepare them for life after high school.
Topics include leadership development, resume writing, interview skills, college readiness, career readiness, financial literacy, mental health awareness, and entrepreneurship.
Suits for Seniors is currently hosted at 16 high schools across the state, including Atlantic High School, Dwyer, Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. The organization is hoping to expand services to other area schools.
At Hunger Games Executive Edition, guests will have the opportunity to hear program graduates present business plans they’ve created with audience participation.
There are three levels of participation. For a $100 donation, one can be an official judge; for a $50 donation one can vote for a favorite business plan; for $25 one can observe the magic unfold.
Judges are able to provide direct feedback to the presenters to improve their opportunities to be successful with their business endeavors.
The goal of the event is to not only raise needed funds to the high-impact program, but to also match students with potential mentors who could guide them through the next phase of life including starting their business or post-secondary education.
