Teens Shaping the Future

Teens Shaping the Future

Educators Rising Arizona held their 2018 state leadership conference in Tucson in March. Four hundred and twenty-seven Arizona high school students interested in education careers took part in the conference. We had the pleasure of hosting them for a UA campus visit. Their visit started with an Admissions tour which terminated at Campus Rec. Before setting off on a relaxing evening to check out all that the Rec Center has to offer, the students heard from our academic advisor, Angela Botello about the programs available in our college. Students also engaged with panel of six UA undergraduates from various education programs who discussed their experience as education majors and answered questions. By attending the conference and visiting the university campus, these teens get a glimpse into professional education careers and form a vision for a brighter future.
