Last Friday, July 25, thanks to the generosity of PIMCO volunteer team, our teenagers had a chance to visit PIMCO office, get individualized help for college preparation and receive constructive advice from PIMCO employees.
After the fun ice-breaker through which we had a chance to mingle with the adults, two teenagers were paired up with one employee to consult with. The PIMCO employees were extremely helpful and friendly. They didn't hesitate to answer any questions regarding college admission process, read through the college essays that the teenagers had prepared, share their experience in colleges and listen to us express the concern about career choices.

After that, the youth also had a tour around PIMCO office, having a glance at how people worked in the bank and understanding more about finance as well as PIMCO. It was an entirely new experience to see such a professional space.
We are thankful for all the volunteers in PIMCO, who took out their time to meet and help our teenagers. Many of our team members are still preparing for college applications or the next chapter of their lives in college. Thank you so much and we won't forget such a memorable day!
