The Hogan Entrepreneurial Program held its 14th annual “Job Preparation Workshop” for homeless and near-homeless individuals. This year we partnered with Catholic Charities of Hawaii. They provide a wide range of social services with dignity and compassion for all. Hogan students worked alongside the participants to help construct their resumes and to assist in improving their job interviewing skills. They had a rare glimpse into the lives of the less fortunate. Over the course of the day, the participants were treated to breakfast and lunch which they heartily enjoyed. This is one of the most important things we do and it is very well received by the Honolulu community.
Leading the workshop was Denny McDonough, ENT 301 Instructor and Hogan Advisory Board member, along with Ed Nakamura, Program Specialist at the Institute for Human Services (IHS). The event concluded with a presentation of Certificates of Completion and an L&L gift card by Richard Kido, Chaminade Professor of Accounting and Hogan Board member.
Hogan student volunteers included: Paula Sainz, Fabian Patterson, Nathanael Cassion, Jana Paz, Anthony Shipp, Maddeline Smith, Yongfei Zhao, Caiyan Fang, Connor Flynn and Gabriel Garcia.
