Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Hillsborough Education Foundation

Hillsborough Education Foundation is seeking career professionals to provide virtual workshops for students as part of our College and Career Readiness initiative. Minority, low-income and first-generation college students often need additional support in postsecondary planning. Volunteers can share their expertise with students related to their career field and/or planning for college to provide exposure to avenues students may not have explored.

The workshop format will be one hour or less and volunteers will present virtually via zoom (during the early evening, 5:30-6:30PM EST). Topics can include career exploration or preparing for college. Average attendance for virtual workshops is 30 students.

Previous workshop topics have included:

  • Building a Resume
  • SAT/ACT Prep
  • Starting a Career with the Airforce
  • Stress Management / Healthy Eating
  • Interview Skills
  • Time Management
  • Careers in Radio and Broadcast Journalism
  • Organizational Skills
  • Personal Finance
  • Welding: From Certification to Career

Volunteers will be contacted after signing up to coordinate a topic, day and time that works best for their schedule.

About Hillsborough Education Foundation


2306 N. Howard Avenue, Tampa, FL 33607, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen public education in Hillsborough County through advocacy, investment of resources and programs that empower every student to achieve both academic and personal success.


Hillsborough Education Foundation is dedicated to deepening our impact on students and teachers to ensure every student receives a high-quality education. We are particularly focused on creating equity and leveling the playing field in our highest needs schools. Together with our partners, we are investing in a prosperous future for our community.

Our work centers around making an impact, engaging our community to invest in education and ensuring our teachers have the necessary resources to provide all students with an equal opportunity to graduate and achieve success. By strengthening public education, we strive to build a better community to positively impact the lives of individual teachers and students, regardless of background or economic status.

We pride ourselves in collaborating with our supporters to ensure your gifts are used in the most impactful way possible. For every dollar our partners invest, 92 cents is used directly for programs supporting teachers and students. It is due in part to our dedication to be responsible stewards of donors’ contributions that we have earned a 4 Star Charity rating from Charity Navigator.

As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation provides Hillsborough County Public Schools with funding that is typically more flexible than restricted tax dollars. The funding and extra resources for the students, teachers, and schools helps to cover the gap that exists between what school budgets can cover, and what is needed to ensure the academic success of our students.
