We are pleased to be offering USF's 8th annual Young Minds at Work with a twist. This year, with our current remote work environment, we are bringing the event to your home and excited about the opportunity to offer something different with more sessions and more variety.

Sessions include:

  • Kick the day off right with our inspirational welcome led by the ever-energetic and motivating Frank Allocco.
  • No bones about it, this session with Kinesiology will be engaging and humorous!
  • Meet Lilou the therapy pig and bring your own fur baby or stuffed animal.
  • Move it, move it, move it with Koret.
  • Create a zine with Gleeson. Participants will be creating their very own one-page zine based on a favorite book. Decorate with pictures, photos, or create a collage. Visit this link for recommended supplies or order a zine kit for free. This session will be led by Fabi Hernandez.
  • Grab your spatula and create a yummy lunch with our executive chef.
  • Postcards with Love is an opportunity to write a note to a loved one who you missed during the past year. This session will be led by Nell Herbert of the Thacher Gallery. 
  • "A penny saved is a penny earned." Dennis Miller, ABS, leads this session on learning how to be wise with money.
  • Come meet a couple of USF's finest, super-star student athletes and bring your questions.
