The LPL Financial Foundation and LPL Financial’s Boston employees recently partnered with Crossroads for Kids to host high school students at the company’s” Explore Your Future” an annual interactive career exploration event aimed to help prepare high school students for a successful college experience and a future of economic empowerment.

Students gathered to accept career advice from LPL’s executive leaders and employee volunteers. Some of the day’s activities included:

  • Interactive roundtable discussion, in which LPL’s employee volunteers and executive leaders discussed their career paths and fielded questions about being productive and successful in the business world
  • Student presentations about their experience with the Crossroads for Kids program
  • Interviews tips and resume writing guidance

“The students were interested, talented, and motivated to succeed,” said Darya Geetter, executive vice president and deputy general counsel. “By discussing the varied ways the LPL employees in the room got to where they were, and the many different types of roles that exist within even one organization, we hope that the students left with the understanding that they have many exciting opportunities ahead of them.”

“Explore Your Future” is part of the LPL Financial Foundation’s year-round effort to help prepare and transition high school students for a successful college experience and a future of economic empowerment. Through the foundation, LPL partners with a number of organizations to provide the support needed to help underserved youth achieve academic success, meaningful careers, and responsible citizenship.

Crossroads for Kids provides youth with support, resources, and opportunities to help guide and unlock their potential and positive impact in the world.

Congratulations LPL Financial!
