We all remember our childhood dreams of one day being a police officer, a doctor, or the next Donald Trump, but most of us were limited to our living rooms or front yards. Join Chicago Taiwanese American Professionals as we pair up with the kids of Horizons for Youth on their January outing to explore the mini city and all kinds of career simulations at Journey World.
Snacks will be provided by Horizons for Youth. Please arrive at 8:45 to get paired up with your favorite kid, programming starts at 9am.
Cost is free, but please RSVP by Friday via WePay: https://www.wepay.com/events/horizonsforyouth

More about Journey World:
Journey World is an experiential programming space designed to inspire the next generation of civic and community leaders. The sensory-stimulating center is uniquely designed as two separate floors that spotlight interrelated learning opportunities. On the It’s Your Future- Dream It! floor, a “mini-city” invites students to simulate real job responsibilities in offices that have been visually customized to resemble known institutions and businesses. The programs culminate with a full-day simulation at Journey World where students apply important concepts and skills as they take on real-life business, government, and science careers.
