About

Fall 2016 Career Day

Interested in supporting local students with disabilities? Look no further! We have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Join PROVAIL in our very first Career Day in an effort to provide resources for high-school students as they approach graduation and begin the job-seeking process.

PROVAIL is one of the state's largest private, multi-service agencies committed to meeting the needs of children, youth, and adults with disabilities. Through our Employment Program, PROVAIL provides youth and adults with services to assist in the process of finding meaningful employment within the community.

PROVAIL’s Career Day will provide a number of presentations and practical workshops that allow students to practice skills that are essential to obtaining their first job. Students will learn about proper interview dress and etiquette, practice one-on-one mock interviews, complete skill-based working assessments, and more! Career Day participants will build confidence around the interview process and gain the skills necessary to successfully transition into their first job. This unique volunteer opportunity allows you to have a direct impact on the lives of our participants as you gain experience working one-on-one with youth with disabilities.
