IDEA's Workforce Friday lunch program brings diverse individuals and organizations to our cafeteria to share perspectives about different professions and post-secondary opportunities. Past workforce lunch participants have included US Postal Service workers, cosmetologists, emergency medical technicians, graphic designers, nonprofit youth-service organizations, and universities.
We are actively seeking community members, companies, small businesses, and other institutions to join us for workforce lunch once a month. There are three lunch periods at IDEA, lasting from noon to 2pm. Workforce Friday guests are asked to be available to scholars during the entire lunch window. Workforce Friday dates available for the rest of the school year are December 21, January 18, February 15, March 15, April 12, May 24, and June 7.
