Business Volunteers: Contribute to the Development of Tomorrow’s Workforce
Our regional businesses can play a key role in our career development mission by volunteering their time to help students develop real-world skills and knowledge.
Targeted volunteer opportunities are being organized by the Business Advisory Council (formerly the Business-Education Connectivity Council (BECC). The time required is minimal, but business volunteers will have a lifelong influence on our students’ futures and a far-reaching impact on the region’s economic development.
We are looking for volunteers to share their expertise through the following opportunities:
- Career and Workforce Readiness Program Experiences for students in grade 11
- Business Training Presentations for students in grades 9 and 10
Career and Workforce Readiness Program Experiences
Volunteers work with students in grade 11 who participate in the Career and Workforce Readiness Program.
Volunteers are needed for four main events:
- Fourth-Annual BAC-CPS Career Expo – held October 25, 2018 – Talk to students about your career. (2019 date TBD)
- Life Ready – January 31, 2019
- Job Shadowing – February 28 or March 1, 2019 – Allow a student to shadow you at your job.
- Mock Interviews – March 20, 2019 – Perform a mock job interview with a student at your job.
Business Training Presentations for Students in Grades 9 and 10
Guest speakers are needed to present on a variety of career and employment-ready subjects at the Business Training Center.
