Port Chester High School is turning to its alumni and local professionals for help in teaching sophomores about the many career options open to them in the future.
PCHS' first Sophomore Career Day is set for March 19 at the high school, and organizers are inviting grads and professionals to be part of the program as volunteers.
From those who participate, here's what PCHS is looking for:
What was the path that took you to your career?
Why did you choose your career?
What do you love about your career?
What do you see as challenging about your career?
What should students do if they were interested in pursuing your career?
Answering questions from students about your career.
The schedule for Sophomore Career Day begins with the arrival of guests at 7:45 a.m. for coffee and a light breakfast. At 8:15 a.m., guests will be escorted to the auditorium for opening remarks with Principal Mitchell Combs. Upon the conclusion of opening remarks, guests will be led to a venue where they will join other similar professionals to speak with students.
The program runs through the morning, with guest speakers invited to lunch at noon.
The deadline for volunteering to participate in the program is Tuesday, Feb. 19. For more information or to volunteer, contact Guidance Chairperson Juan Carolos Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org
