We may all be practicing social distancing, but you can still be a volunteer remotely.

Volunteer Career Exploration program

The purpose of this program is to familiarize youth with careers that they are interested in, and introduce them to new career opportunities. Most important, we want to engage young people with experts in the field and give them a sense of hope for the future during these challenging times.

A select group of business professionals, in a variety of professions, will be asked about having an informal conversation on the phone with an El Nido high school youth (s) for a 30-minute discussion about their career experiences.

All presentations will be done on a free conference call line to ensure that no contact information is shared with youth or the volunteer presenter, and to allow multiple youth participants if more than one person is interested in a topic. In addition, there will be a staff person on all calls as a moderator.

Presenters will be given guidelines to steer their presentations in a direction most beneficial to youth, and in an approach that allows meaningful youth feedback. We will prepare a list of questions that the youth can ask the professional guest speaker to assure a conversation is productive.

Here are a few suggested topics: How to write a resume, Mock interviews, Career advice and planning, Budgets and personal finance, How to build a website, Create a video game, How to take good photos with your phone, Culinary skills, A fun recipe that’s healthy and easy to prepare, Demonstrate a craft, Teach a yoga or dance class, Teach meditation, Do story readings, How to play an instrument, How to write poetry, Teach an improv or acting class, Teach a dance class, Gardening.
