The Greene Scholars Program (GSP) is seeking assistance from the extended community to provide mentoring through a mock interview process on Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 9:00am – 1:00pm. Our Scholars are coming prepared with their resumes to meet with Bay Area professionals to discuss their pursuit of future career opportunities.
We would like to introduce our students to members of the professional community that align with their area of interest, in hopes that these relationships will provide powerful inspiration and meaningful insight.
Each 3rd - 12th grade Scholar will participate in several mock interviews which will provides semi-formal interview experience, plus allows them to discuss their passion and deepen their understanding of what it takes to be successful in their field of interest. This will also be your opportunity to have a dialogue with our scholars and share information about your profession, how you prepared for your career and any words of wisdom that you can impart to them. We would like this to be a food for thought moment, where the Scholars gain a better understanding on what they need to do to help them prepare for that field/degree program.
Professionals with the following experience/expertise are needed:
If this is your background or even close to your skill set, or if you know of someone with this background, please take a few minutes to register. This is a maximum of a three hour commitment, but your impact on the lives of these students could be priceless. As the date is quickly approaching, please register as soon as possible.
“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
Don't underestimate the value of sharing your wisdom with our youth. We all have something to contribute.
