Mastermind Connect has teamed up with the Office of Equity and Access of the New York City Department of Education for a bi-monthly career panel series dubbed “Breakfast of Champions," along with a series of supportive workshops.

These panels and workshops are comprised of diverse professionals across business sectors who seek to expose the young men and women of the NYC Urban Ambassadors and NYC Great! programs to the many opportunities and paths available to them. Students get a glance into the lives of individuals who dare to make a change in their respective fields of expertise, while staying true to themselves.

Our May 11, 2019 Breakfast of Champions will focus on careers in the Sports Field, followed by a basketball game between the participants, panelists and Mastermind Connect members.
