On Friday, March 17, Manhattan Country School eighth-graders will spend the morning at the workplaces of professionals around the city. During our annual Eighth Grade Mentoring Day, MCS alumni, parents and other members of the community host students as they explore potential careers. Each eighth-grader will be matched with a professional working in a field in which they have expressed interest. During these visits, students have the opportunity to experience the environment, observe their mentor at work, ask questions that could help them shape their career aspirations, and oftentimes have hands-on involvement.
