The JA Virtual Career Speakers Series is an opportunity for you to tell your story while inspiring our next generation of leaders & provide hope for eastern NC students. Volunteers share school, work experiences, and stories that offer insight and guidance in career development. JA will provide talking points as a guide for your discussion. Select a few of your favorite questions - feel free to add a topic that is important to you! Whether it’s the importance of mentorship, work/life balance, women in STEM, investing.... add your own spin to the questions. Students want to hear your story & learn about your world of work! JA of Eastern NC is collecting videos from volunteers on a rolling basis to add to our video resource library. Middle and high school students will be able to access the library directly, or teachers can share with their classes. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Dena Birks at email@example.com or (919)796-4763.
