High Schoolers Host City's Young Pros

Dayton’s teenaged up-and-comers hope to school the city’s current generation of young professionals over lunch this Friday at Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School, located at 505 S. Ludlow St.

On September 28, members and guests of Generation Dayton (GenD) will be reminded why it is important to ‘Act Like a Teenager,’ as CJ seniors share about their experiences with community involvement, service, faith and diversity on and around the school’s downtown campus. The partnership is a result of GenD’s monthly Fourth Friday Lunch Speaker Series.

“By investing in today’s young professionals, we are assisting the leaders of tomorrow, the next generation of our Dayton region,” said LaDonna Wulfeck, program manager.

A program of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, GenD focuses on attracting and retaining the city’s young talent, ages 21 to 40, by offering professional development, community service and networking opportunities. During the noon to 1:30 p.m. luncheon, Dan Meixner, CJ president, will also address the group about his experiences as a leader in the community.

“We hope the future leaders who walk the halls of Chaminade Julienne can remind and inspire today’s generation of professionals to actively seek opportunities that impact positive outcomes for change,” Meixner said.
