The Youth Leadership Committee focuses on creating business educational opportunities for junior and senior Chester County high school students through the Youth Leadership Program. The committee supports the implementation of the program’s agenda. (For more about the Youth Leadership Program, see page 23.)
Sassan Hejazi, Director of the Technology Solutions Group at Kreischer Miller, first learned of the Youth Leadership Program about 10 years ago, when his daughter attended, and has become a passionate advocate of its benefits.
“The program is really focused on engaging high school students to get a better understanding of the business community in the county,” he said. “We want them to understand the potential paths available to them across industries and at the same time sharpen their skills in regards to networking, business presentations, organizations and collaborations.”
Those who are part of the committee “really act as mentors and participate in events so that the students can leverage us,” Hejazi said. “We encourage students to ask us questions and connect with us on LinkedIn so we can put them in touch with potential employers.”
Another important function is to keep the next generation of talent living and working in the county. “We try to educate the youth that there are a lot of opportunities in Chester County,” Hejazi said. “They might be going to college anywhere, but they can see the breadth
and depth of opportunities available in the county, so hopefully they’ll remember that when they’re circling back for internship opportunities.”
