Students Prepare for a “Winning Future” through Mentoring Program

DPSCD and Winning Futures Workforce Prep Mentoring Program partnered to mentor Mumford High School students. Winning Futures is a nonprofit mentoring program that empowers youth to succeed through mentoring, strategic planning and workforce preparation. The goal of the program is to nurture our students to become self-reliant, employable and productive adults. Mentoring began in October with 56 Mumford students and 16 volunteer members who had the goal of teaching our students critical life skills.

Students had the opportunity to network with top employers and explore a variety of careers at organizations such as Lear Corp., Beaumont Medical Group, Ally Financial and Pepsi Co. In addition to building professional relationships, students met with mentors to discuss career planning and participated in team bonding activities. For the remainder of the school year students will begin the career exploration portion of the program where they will research professions they are interested in and develop a 10-year timeline to reach their chosen profession.

The program will hold its 25th anniversary awards event in May where one Mumford student will be selected as the Winning Futures Students of the Year!
