Sometimes just one conversation can influence a young person’s career.
That’s the strategy behind the Talent Talks program coordinated by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
It connects young professionals with high school students, sharing individual experiences and career journeys in Sioux Falls.

Talent Talks is one of several workforce development programs coordinated by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
