We're looking for 60 volunteers from a variety of careers to join us for "Find Your Spark," Patrick Henry High School's Career Exploration event!

Whether you work in the trades, business, healthcare, the arts, STEM, retail or another sector, you have valuable experience and perspectives to share with students as they explore their career options.  

You'll be based in a classroom and there will be two, 45 minute sessions for you to share information about a day-in-the-life at your job, how you got to where you are today and tips on how students can pursue a career in your field. The event includes a short orientation before heading to your classrooms and a debrief with other volunteers after the event. We'll be in touch in January with more details. 

We encourage you to bring props and real-world examples to help bring your career to life, we will provide suggestions on ways to engage students with your presentation. Your story may help a student discover a brand new career!

All volunteers are welcome! To better reflect the students we serve, we particularly encourage people of color, Henry alumni, community members who live or work in the Henry neighborhood or have friends and family who attend Henry, to apply.
