Our Power Tie Give Away on October 23, 2019 at Jordan High School was another Power Tie Giveaway success. We presented to Mr. Bryan Carter's Male Academy class of 16 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 Professionals Present - Get the Message Across
Jordan students first heard from four business professionals. The professionals explained why and when they wear a necktie and how they view themselves and others in a necktie. Each business mentor also explained their business background.
2. The Give Away and Training
Each student selected two ties from one of several donated ties. One was brand new and the other a tie used and donated by a business professional. 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
The students realized and shared the reasons and benefits of owning and wearing a necktie.
We interviewed students for their reaction and feedback. You could see their sense of accomplishment in learning how to knot their own necktie. Each of the students had the chance to tell us their college or work goals.
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 two neckties 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.
