Astoria Federal Savings and ITHS Host Conference to Mentor Future Workforce

Submitted by Charles Murphy, Island Trees Superintendent.

Astoria Federal Savings and Island Trees High School recently held their 8th annual Students Taking Action for Real Success (STARS) interview workshop at the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale. 

The program helps prepare juniors and seniors from Island Trees High School for career success.  The event featured workshops on image building and presentation skills, and culminated with a series of mock interviews where students were evaluated by managers from Astoria Federal Savings and other representatives from local businesses.

After the interview sessions, the students received feedback and tips on how to improve both their resume and interviewing skills. A very collaborative day for students and mentors.  

This year’s speakers included Carol Silva from News 12 Long Island, Kathy and Kenneth Walden from On Track Skills Inc., and Bob Wolf, the founder of HOPE: The Students’ Bridge to Business program, which helps students confidently transition from school to the business world.  The speakers inspired the students with stories and encouraged them to begin their career planning now by finding new and varied internships and experiences.  

Since 2001, Astoria Federal Savings has funded and coordinated the STARS program for Island Trees High School. Astoria Federal’s Levittown Branch Manager, Lois Cornibert, has helped coordinate the interview program since its inception, serving as co-chair with Island Trees School to Business Partnership teacher Carol Siegel

We appreciate their support and dedication to our students.
