Make sure to DREAM BIG!

Posted On:

There is still time to sign up for Starkloff’s DREAM BIG Career Camp.  Just fill out an interest form by July 4th to set up an interview. This is a great opportunity for students with disabilities to learn about careers they did not think were possible.

The program runs from July 16-20th, when students will be visiting five companies in St. Louis to discover career opportunities and life after high school.

Monday, July 16: Danforth Plant Science Center

Tuesday, July 17: Nestle Purina PetCare

Wednesday, July 18: Washington University OT School

Thursday, July 19: FleishmanHillard Inc.

Friday, July 20: Missouri History Museum

All students who have already attended the camp this summer have enjoyed their experience immensely:

“The reason I wanted to attend is to get a better understanding of skills for jobs and seeing if I was interested in any of them,” said one student. “It exceeded my expectations and it was a lot more hands-on and a lot more in-depth than I thought it would be.”

“I really wanted to attend to open my mind and wanted to see what opportunities I had and to see what other careers I could do,” said another. “I saw so many opportunities that I didn’t think about and that I didn’t know. I’m thinking about different opportunities now because of the camp.”

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Sarah Schwegel, Youth Transition Coordinator at 314-588-7090 or at sschwegel@starkloff.org with any questions
