Career Day: Volunteers Needed



Inspire Young Minds

Are you or someone you know willing to share your career choice with our middle school students? If so, please sign up, or encourage your friend to sign up, to give a Career Day presentation.


Career Day will be Friday, January 17th from 8:15am – 12:00pm. Presenters will spend approximately 25 minutes with a small group of middle school students each session. There will be approximately four sessions throughout the morning.


We need confirmation no later than Friday, December 6th so that we have enough time to appropriately plan the schedules for the students.


Middle School students learn best through hands-on experiences so any tools of the trade or simulations of work-related tasks are greatly appreciated.


Please help us make the MS Career Day a success by volunteering your time. Just complete this form and more information will be sent to you. If you have any questions or any difficulties completing the form, please contact Eileen Knobloch at Eileenk@faculty.isd.sn or Brittney Merryweather at BrittneyM@faculty.isd.sn.
