Are You in Industry and Want to Get Involved?
What is one of the best ways to expose students to career pathways? Let them meet professionals in those careers.
Become a Career Ambassador
We’ve all been there. Just starting out on your career journey. Remember how tough it was? Did you have someone to tell you about the “real world” of work? Did someone share aspects of their career which inspired you to learn more? If not and you wish you did, here’s your chance to make it right for someone else. If you did have a professional show you the way, here’s your chance to pay it forward, by serving as a Bright Futures Career Ambassador.
Meet talented students who are interested in learning about your business and various career paths and jobs by volunteering for a minimum of an hour a year to talk to students (in-person or via video conference) to share your experience. You can make an impact in only an hour! You may never know what sharing your experience at a local school can do for a youth. Want to know a great perk of being a Career Ambassador, beyond potentially changing young lives? There’s minimal preparation because you’re talking about things you know well – you and your career.
