About

We're looking for volunteers to help us facility team workstations with 9th and 12th grade students as we help them develop the basic professional skills that students should have after completing High School to help them make the most of every opportunity, to find successful jobs while in college, to maximize their networking opportunities, to learn about life long financial literacy, and most importantly to have successful careers going in to college and after completing college.

We host monthly programs for each group through the Student Success Academy at Southwest schools where there will be a member of the board facilitating each session. We need volunteers to sit with each of the student groups (groups of 5) to help facilitate the break-out sessions. Sessions run each month starting in February.
