Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
There are several upcoming volunteer opportunities that you or your company can get involved in. Here are three examples of upcoming one-time opportunities:
STEM for Girls
When: Saturday, February 23, 2019 (11:45 a.m. - 1:10 p.m.)
Where: College of Lake County Grayslake Campus
STEM for Girls is a free event for girls in grades 7 through 12 who are interested in STEM programs. During the Lunch and Learn, volunteers will share how STEM degrees impact their companies. Volunteers representing a STEM related company come and share with girls and their parents about STEM careers, internships, and scholarship opportunities offered at their companies.
Host a Job Shadow Half-Day with High School Students
This is a unique opportunity for companies to have a personal engagement with high school students over one morning. Educational Talent Search/TRIO at College of Lake County has requested four job shadow opportunities for their partnering high schools: Waukegan High School, North Chicago High School, Round Lake High School, and Zion-Benton Township High School.
ETS/TRIO serves first generation college-bound students. This event will allow students to visit companies to learn more about professional work life. This interaction will allow students the opportunity to engage with volunteer professionals, ask questions and learn to network. A typical outing includes 30-40 students “job shadowing” 15 company employees.
Dr. Seuss Readers
Join us on March 1, 2019, to participate in Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Read Across America Day. Volunteers will be "guest readers" and share their love of reading with kindergarten through third grade children.
