Job Path 2014 Annual Benefit….
Job Path’s 2014 Annual Benefit was co-hosted by Tina Brown & Sir Harold Evans, Robert De Niro & Grace Hightower, and Vicky Ward & Richard Cohen. This year we had a panel discussion, “Nothing Works Like Working”, with parents sharing their experiences of what Job Path has meant for their children. The Employer of the Year was The New School and the award was accepted by President, David E. Van Zandt.
