Thank You to Varick Media for Hosting Kaplan House!

We appreciate Varick Media Management’s interest in volunteering with the Jewish Board, and for their ongoing engagement with the young men of Kaplan House, a residence for 17-21 years old in the foster care system.

This partnership began with an evening at the headquarters of Varick Media, where seven young men met with Varick staff to learn about their careers and their paths in the field of advertising. After a meaningful discussion of finding ‘your’ job path, Varick committed to meet with young men from Kaplan House quarterly to continue vocational conversation and preparation. A second session consisted of mock interviews and working one-on-one to build strong resumes. With several more sessions to go, we know that this volunteer relationship will continue to have an impact on our young men’s focus and confidence in a professional setting.
