Serve on a Career Panel for Immigrant Youth in Fairfax, VA!
2 people are interested
ELP I is a free 12 session workshop series offered to youth in grades 9-12 three times per year. Each ELP I series includes workshops that focus on developing professional skills and building confidence to become a leader. Activities include:
For the duration of the program, students have the opportunity to bond with a young professional in a mentor-mentee relationship: working on small crews of 4 to 6 students, each mentor is able to provide more attention to the individual needs and progress of the students, helping them finalize their resume, speech, and scholarship application.
Volunteer Opportunity: As a career panelist, you will volunteer for one evening. The first half of the evening is set up as a panel discussion. Panelists share their stories and career path with the entire group and respond to questions that the students might have. For the second half, students are divided into small groups and then rotate among the individual panelists so that they can speak with each other on a more personal level.
Frequency: One Time
