Career Talks! We are searching for professionals that will present to classrooms of students either in-person or virtually! You have the chance to help a student MEET THEIR FUTURE through your own Career Talk! You will have support all along the way, working with local teachers and the Founder to create your presentation. We can provide information about what the students are interested in, their familiarity with a particular topic, or anything else! The Founder will work with you to give you ideas, help you create something engaging, and will provide guidelines to help you find a starting point.
Mentors are crucial. These students will see what you are doing and think, "I can do that too!" We want to help you create a strong presentation so students can envision that future!
Here are some things that we would expect of our professional volunteers in their presentations:
Presentations lasting 15 to 30 minutes.
Appropriate for 3rd through 5th grade.
Include an activity relating to your field such as solving a problem in that career, using a technology popular to that career, "walking" through a day.
Be engaging! Students would love to interact with you!
Be hands on! Kids love to get involved and love to participate in some way!
Explain why you chose that career, what lead you there, and how you built your "vision" for your future.
Professional Chat! We need professionals who could give a short summary of their career on film. We would like to hear why you chose that career, how you built your "vision," and what you do every day. We would set up a time to video tape you at work so students could see your profession in action!
