Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner
On January 7, 2014 NESA Chicago will celebrate the accomplishments of the latest Eagle Scout class from the Chicago Area Council. This year's speaker is Dr. Clyde Yancy, Chief of Cardiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. We will also be presenting Dr. Yancy with the council's first Distinguished Eagle Scout Award since 1998. The dinner will be held at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in the Feinberg Pavilion. The dinner will also serve as a "Gathering of Eagles" and we hope to have the largest reunion of Eagle Scouts gathered in Chicago present at the dinner. All new Eagle Scouts (November 2012-November 2013) will receive an invitation in the mail to attend as the guest of a sponsor. Anyone is welcome to attend as a sponsor. There will be a special rate for Eagle Scouts who are 25 years old or younger. For more information, or to register, visit www.NESAChicago.org/ESRD.
Career Mentoring Program
Last fall we held our first-ever career fair for Chicago Scouts and high school students. We had over 25 professionals on hand to provide the youth an opportunity to learn from adult experts about careers in a number of different industries.
We would like to continue providing this type of mentoring to Chicago Scouts and high school students by creating a network of professionals who would be willing to travel to local schools to do a short presentation (no more than one hour total) about their industry and career interests.
This program will be conducted in conjunction with the council’s Career Exploring program. We will utilize a career interest survey to determine which industries the students are most interested in so we are able to coordinate appropriate speakers. The program would be open to all students (male and female) and, if allowed by the school, Scouts who are at least 14 years old.
Currently we are gathering information on professionals who would be interested in participating in this program by speaking at a school once or twice a year. If you are interested, please visit www.NESAChicago.org/CareerMentoring and fill out our brief survey.
