FOR Hosts YLC “Power Ties”
December 13, 2016
As part of our ongoing relationship with the Young Leadership Council (YLC), on December 9, 2016, the Fellowship of Orthopaedic Researchers was proud to host a group of 8th grade students from Samuel J. Green Charter School in New Orleans participating in the Job Site Visit phase of Power Ties.
Power Ties, a partnership of the Young Leadership Council and New Orleans Outreach, is a career awareness program that connects professionals with 8th grade students to talk about career readiness and business etiquette. The students were given a tour of the FOR facility which included all of our specialty laboratories. They also participated in several hands-on projects while visiting the Design, Image Analysis, and Cadaver Labs.
The half-day session concluded with lunch, questions, and discussion. For more information on YLC Power Ties, please visit their website: http://ylcnola.org/project/power-ties/.
