About

For many SCS Noonan Scholars, successfully transitioning into careers can be difficult. The gaps between their families' experiences and the demands of career planning can leave their professional aspirations unfulfilled.

For students who weren't raised learning the language associated with college or career, the idea of participating in an unpaid internship opportunity, attending career fairs, or seeking informational interviews can be foreign.

At SCS Noonan Scholars, we are helping our students tackle this unfamiliar territory and achieve their career goals. Through individualized career counseling and internship assistance, our students have become better prepared to enter the professional world.

We look to you for additional support.

By joining our Volunteer Program as a Career Coach, you can provide guidance through career and personal development opportunities.

A Career Coach offers support with career exploration and planning during a short 2-month commitment for 2 hours a week. Working one-on-one with students, a Career Coach will respond to scholars' specific needs or requests including:

  • Resume and cover letter review
  • Identifying and applying to internships/fellowships/full-time positions
  • Identifying and applying to graduate school programs
  • Interview preparation
  • Informational interviews
  • Networking techniques

With your support, our college students will become more competitive applicants for their dream internships and jobs.
