Barker & Sons Participates in Big Brothers Big Sisters Career Day!

Big Brothers Big Sisters recently held a Career Day at the Disney Hotel in Anaheim, CA — and we are so thankful that we had the opportunity to participate! During this year’s event, Big Brothers Big Sisters promoted three different tracks to young students looking to choose a career path. They focused on education, employment, and enlistment. The theme for this year’s event? “Everybody has a path, let’s find yours”!

This year, Mike Barker met with students to help them explore and discover the path that is right for them. More specifically, he met with students to help them learn a little bit more about the opportunities available to them should they decide to choose a career in the Plumbing – Heating & Cooling industry!

During the event, students walked around to different tables and asked different vendors questions about their unique industry. The activity was designed to help them step out of their comfort zone, gain valuable communication skills, and learn more about the opportunities available to them as they navigate either college or career post-high school.

A special thank you to all of the students who stopped by with questions about the Plumbing, Heating & Cooling industry! It was a pleasure speaking with everyone at the event — and we hope that we have the opportunity to see a few of you again soon as leaders in the industry!
