Future Forward: Summer Tech Career Series for SYEP Students

Meet Technology Pros and Ask them Anything about their Careers

The Future Forward series is an explorative experience for students to envision their future selves. Each Thursday, a panel of professionals will discuss different themes that give students access to new perspectives and ideas of building their own journeys to the future, in a meaningful and intentional way.

Each event is designed and hosted by student interns with the support of Mouse and NYC's Division of Informational and Instruction Technology (DIIT).

Attendees will:

  • Meet a panel of professionals with applied technology careers
  • Participate in an "Ask Me Anything"-style Q&A with the experts where you can add and up-vote your favorite questions
  • Get follow-up activity ideas to dig deeper into each career
