After much consideration and partnership with the school staff and PSTA, Career Day Co-Chairs, Amber Wendover and Amy Bendotti have planned an interactive experience for all grades to experience career day.
With the school split by grade level, career day will focus on:
· Informing students of the importance of middle school as it relates to their future career.
· Connecting students with the community through volunteers attending to share real experiences of how various adults have started, grown and maintained their careers. We realize that no journey is the same – and are looking for your unique experiences to share with the students.
· Empowering students to create important habits around resume building, leveraging strengths, building leadership skills, practicing communication and presentation skills and understanding why all this is important to start thinking about in middle school. We will not be asking student to pick a specific career, we will focus on creating awareness and acknowledging that life is a journey – everyone is different – and there are numerous options for future careers. No stereotyping, labeling or judging – every student has the opportunity to consider who they are and what they enjoy. Career day will end with a moving forward message connecting dots back to middle school. Encouraging students to explore different interests, practice developing leadership skills, show respect, take risks, meet different people and build relationships.
In order to execute career day, we need YOUR help. If you are interested in volunteering for career day, we have a variety of roles available!
