As part of our work with Eastern Senior High School and Companies for Causes, Raffa hosted an inaugural group of high school students last summer for “Easternships.” We are getting ready for the second year of the program and look forward to hosting a new group of students in July and August!
D.C. students shadowed Raffa professionals and took part in learning sessions hosted by our staff. The students strengthened their communication skills, learned workplace etiquette and developed leadership skills.
As Tom Raffa described last summer, “Three students participated in the mentorship program at Raffa. They were able to shadow professionals in our accounting, marketing, technology and back-office operations and have been given specific training on social media, financial and career planning and business communications.”
