Career Day Volunteers Needed!
Collins will be hosting its annual Career Day on Monday, May 15, 2023. The purpose of Career Day is to expose students to a variety of careers in order to jumpstart their thinking about the future. By preparing early, students will be more likely to be college and career ready after high school graduation.
All students will participate in Career Day. However, we can’t do it without you! We need volunteers to speak for three 20 minute-long sessions about their career starting at 8:00 am and ending at 10:00 am. We will have four sessions: 8:00- 8:20; 8:30-8:50; 9:00-9:20; and 9:30 -9:50
If you, a family member, or friend is interested in volunteering to speak about a career, please complete the form below.
Volunteer selection will be on a first-come basis.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Castaneda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With your help, we look forward to having another engaging Career Day!
