The 2023 NYC Exposure Experience was PHENOMENAL!
In April 2023, we joined our brother organization, The Heman Sweatt Center for Black Males, and took a group of 30 students to New York City to visit the NBA, IBM, Spotify, US Tennis Association, Galaxy Financial Firm, and BIG Architectural Firm. The meetings consisted of panel discussions, networking, touring the facilities, and learning about internship opportunities. We also enjoyed a cultural experience at the BAM Theatre Company in Brooklyn! Before the trip took place, we conducted workshops to prepare the students to network, know their value, and move about NYC efficiently. What a successful experience from start to finish! A huge thanks to the volunteers to joined us in this experience AND to the companies and their executives who hosted us!

The 2020 FLI Wall St. Exposure Trip was a huge SUCCESS!
In January 2020, FLI students & staff engaged with several top companies in NYC such as L’Oreal, HBO, Facebook, Instagram, The National Urban League (NUL), the WNBA, and Koviem Suits to learn about different industries and how to gain access to competitive career and internship opportunities. We even had a special conversation with former mayor of New Orleans, Mr. Marc Morial, current president of NUL and enjoyed Gelato at Facebook. We navigated the big city like true New Yorkers by way of subways, buses, ubers, and lots of walking. Many memories were made in our AirBNB in Brooklyn. We can’t wait to do it again!
