My Life! My Plan! Gives High School Students a Head Start with NFPA as Coaches

On December 11, Milwaukee Public Schools held a My Life! My Plan! Workshop at Bradley Tech High School that focused on STEM Careers – concentrating on Manufacturing and Engineering. NFPA members, Loretta Krenitsky of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and I served as career coaches during the workshop. We were assigned 6-7 freshman high school students to mentor through a series of facilitated career exploration and college preparation activities. In the end all of the coaches felt that it was a very rewarding experience. It was a great way for these freshman to really start thinking about careers and be able to interview us and various other community coaches about our job and how we got there.

If you would like more information on how to become involved with your local high school, please contact Lynn Beyer at or (414) 778-3364.
