Suffolk Care Mock Interviews in the BSA Bear Zone

This week’s Life Skill Lesson involved Suffolk Cares coming to the Zone to participate in mock interviews for the intramural soccer team.

We could not have been more happy and proud to see the two worlds come together to give the students (some who have never experienced an interview before) a relative and realistic look and feel of what to expect in their near future.
