Our Power Tie Give Away on February 21, 2020 at Millikan High School was a fun time. We presented to Mr. Kyle Heinrich’s Male Leadership Academy class of over 30 young men. We accomplished our goal of reaching out to young, male students and providing them with business mentorship and a useful, necessary skill they can use and apply as they move forward in life.
1. Power Partner USA Professionals Present - Get the Message Across
Millikan students first heard from two business professionals, one LBUSD administrator and one Cal State Dominguez University student. The Mentors explained why and when they wear a necktie and how they view themselves and others in a necktie. Each mentor also explained their professional background.
2. The Give Away and Training
Each student selected a tie donated by business professionals, doctors, teachers and who wanted their tie donation to go to a good cause. Brand new ties were also available to take. The class was divided into smaller groups and the mentors gave the students first hand instruction on how to tie the necktie. Every student was attentive, eager to learn and they even helped each other out.
3. The End Result - Discussion and Q and A
The students appreciated receiving a quality necktie and being taught how to knot the tie. The question and Answer session shared the reasons students selected a particular tie and how they plan on using it.
Their their sense of accomplishment in learning how to knot their own necktie was apparent.
Students have a new skill and ready to use it. Each student walked out with a new appreciation for dressing professionally. They also now have a new necktie to add to their collection. They felt confident that they could tie their own necktie and were looking forward to representing themselves in the best light possible.
