This post is NOT an application. If you are interested in volunteering at this event, please fill out the brief form HERE. ( https://bit.ly/ 2024careercarnival )

We are looking for volunteers to teach refugee teenagers about their jobs in a fun and educational carnival-themed event!
At an exhibit booth, share information about your profession and award students with tickets to redeem for prizes!

Why is PAIR hosting this event? Most refugee and newcomer students are unaware of the plethora of career possibilities that exist in Houston. This event will expose them to different jobs they could pursue in the future, explain the educational path needed to obtain these careers, and demystify the actual day-to-day activities of these jobs. The carnival theme is just to make it fun - decorations are on us!

What will I be doing? You will function as a job exhibitor, with a booth to educate students on your profession. You will present some kind of educational activity (equipment demonstration, simulation, short quiz/presentation). If students participate in the activity or answer questions about what they learned correctly, you will award them tickets. We encourage you to be creative and come up with your own activity, but we are happy to help brainstorm if you need ideas (point of clarification: your activity doesn't have to be carnival-themed!). The more hands-on and interactive, the better. Any props or company merch you bring is great!

How do I sign up? Please fill out the form ( https://bit.ly/ 2024careercarnival ) before July 12th to participate. Email any questions to Program Director Melanie Hering at melanie@pairhouston.org. Thank you!
