This activity is structured similarly to speed dating. Job Readiness Workshop participants identify a volunteer to introduce themselves to and start a conversation. They repeat this process until they have spoken to as many volunteers as possible within a 20-30 minute timeframe. The ultimate goal is for each Job Readiness Workshop participant to experience starting a conversation with a "stranger", introducing themselves, and productively presenting their professional experiences and goals.
Tuesdays, 3:20 - 3:45 PM (10 volunteers max). 2016 Dates: 1/5, 1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/8, 3/29, 4/12, 4/26, 5/10, 5/24, 6/14, 6/28, 7/19, 8/2, 8/16, 8/30, 9/20, 10/4, 10/18, 11/1, 11/15, 12/6, 12/13
All volunteers will complete an application and should ideally have enough work experience to be able to share some "words-of-wisdom" with the participants. Volunteers can help on a one time or recurring basis, though we do encourage new volunteers to observe a session at least once to become familiar with the role.
