When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? We asked some of the Greene team this question and the answers ranged from “police officer” or “lawyer” to “horse trainer,” “veterinarian,” or “teacher.”
Over the weekend, the Greene team helped over 2,500 kids explore future careers during the Marbles Kids Museum Future Me Kids Career Fair. Nearly 100 businesses from across the Triangle set up booths with interactive activities for visitors to “test drive” their future. Future veterinarians could look at real-life x-rays of different animals and “examine” stuffed animals with Banfield Pet Hospital. Kids interested in engineering could create their own rocket straw with ABB. Future Leslie Knopes could plan for their own city park with the Wake County Parks and Recreation department. ABC-11 brought their own green screen so kids could give the news and weather report.
Greene Resources has sponsored every Marbles Future Me Kids Career Fair since the event started four years ago. Our team loves to bring our families and friends and explore the different booths and facilitate different activities for the kids. More importantly, volunteering at the Marbles Future Me Kids Career Fair works hand in hand with our company purpose to improve our community by helping job seekers become invaluable team members and turning jobs into life-fulfilling careers. Our passion for people goes beyond our industry and the specialized talent solutions we provide to our clients and customers. When companies and individuals partner with Greene Resources, they become part of an organization motivated by creating positive change in our community.
Marbles Kids Museum’s “play-losophy” states that play “contributes to intellectual growth, social and emotional well-being, and physical development” and “helps develop 21st-century workers who are able to solve problems, apply ideas, create, innovate, communicate, and connect with others.” We are proud to partner with Marbles for the Future Me Kids Career Fair and educate local kids about the many different ways they can contribute to their community in the future as working adults while inspiring them to learn and grow today.
