Start the weekend with a special series highlighting history in all its forms. Begin with our Juneteenth series to focus on an exploration of the history of the newest federal holiday and the importance of reflecting on the past to bring to light the present.

Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom

Juneteenth, which also goes by Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, Liberation Day, or Jubilee Day, is an annual American holiday on June 19th.  The holiday commemorates the official end of slavery in the state of Texas in 1865, over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. While it originated in Texas, Juneteenth is now nationally recognized for its significance and celebrated across the country.

Then continue your weekend by celebrating Father’s Day with special classes curated for Dad and to remember the fond memories the two of you have shared together. Better yet bring Dad to a class to share in the experience together!

Celebrating Dad

Join us in celebrating all the Dads in our lives for Father's Day. You'll be able to reflect on and share memories, hear from Guides about their own Fathers, and learn how to make a Father's Day gift with a personal touch!

Here you can learn how to cultivate your network, how to optimize your profile, and how to make the most of LinkedIn.

Guest Speaker: Rock Your LinkedIn Profile with Lauren Jolda

Your LinkedIn profile helps you get recognized and opens the door to new opportunities like partnerships, new business, mentorships, or speaking events. Your profile is complete only if it’s completely you. In this introductory session, you’ll learn more about how LinkedIn can connect you to opportunities. We’ll introduce you to the core 5 profile sections: Photo/Headline, Summary, Work Experience, Featured, and Volunteer Experience, and the best practices for each. We’ll also spotlight some newly released features such as Cover Story, Pronouns, and Creator Mode. We’ll end by talking about how to cultivate a network on LinkedIn that you can pull from and give back to when you need.
