At Delgado Community College’s summer camp program, my colleague Mariah Weinand and I spoke to rising ninth and 10th graders who attend LA GEAR UP High Schools.
The camp features daily career exploration workshops, spotlighting emerging industries that have a significant impact on the local economy. We discussed communication (what it is, who needs it and the different types) and demonstrated its importance through activities like telephone and two truths and a lie.
Keep an eye out for an original story written by one of these Delgado Community College campers in an upcoming issue of The New Orleans 100.
