New York, NY (October 27, 2015) – Robert “Steve” Miller, President and CEO of International Automotive Components (IAC) Group, received the Dream Big Award from Futures and Options at its fifth annual “Dream Big – A Celebration of Opportunity” event held at the Plaza Hotel yesterday.

Futures and Options is a non-profit organization that provides underserved New York City students with career readiness training, professional mentors, and paid internship opportunities. Djassi Julien from the High School for Math, Science and Engineering in Harlem and Kayla Mackie from Millennium High School in Lower Manhattan were awarded scholarships at Dream Big, which r raised over $725,000 to support Futures and Options’ programs.

“The investment in young people’s professional development and experiences, is a cause with an infinite future,” said Dream Big honoree, Steve Miller. “When businesses support and partner with Futures and Options they help build a stronger and more diverse work force. This is an organization that teaches students confidence through hard work and opens up the business world to a special talent pool.”

 

Miller joins a distinguished group of business leaders who have received The Dream Award for going above and beyond in helping students develop professional skills and achieve their career goals. Past award recipients include representatives of: Goldman Sachs, Evercore Partners Restructuring and Debt Advisory Group, AlixPartners LLP, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, The Municipal Forum of New York, New York Tech Meetup and Personal Democracy Media, Siebert Brandford Shank & Co., L.L.C., and the NYC Office of the Public Advocate and The Fund for Public Advocacy.

“We are so very proud of all of our students, who are motivated and determined to achieve their goals,” said Executive Director Patty Machir. “The value of early work experience is immeasurable, and when businesses partner with Futures and Options to provide opportunities for young people, everyone truly benefits.”

At its heart, the event is a celebration and recognition of Futures and Options students. Each year, the organization awards college scholarships to high school seniors through a competitive application and selection process. This year, the Barbara L. Christen College Scholarship, named in honor of the organization’s founder, was awarded to Djassi Julien from the High School for Math, Science and Engineering. “It’s important to me that everyone have access to computer science,” says Julien, who started an organization called Young Hackers and hopes to work in Silicon Valley as a Front End Web Developer.

The IPG Mediabrands Scholarship and Internship, sponsored by IPG Mediabrands for students interested in careers in media and advertising, was awarded to Kayla Mackie from Millennium High School. Mackie’s dream is, “to obtain a degree in communications and work in a position that will reach those who may be unreachable, connect the disconnected, and encourage those who are discouraged.”
