job and volunteer opportunities

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE CAREER CENTER (ROOM 161) BULLETIN BOARD FOR NEW LOCAL JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Part-time jobs and volunteer work are great ways for high school students to gain "real world" experience and develop important college and career readiness skills. The Career Center offers individual counseling and group workshops to help students who are seeking employment or volunteer work (click here to see volunteer opportunities). Students will learn basic phone and email etiquette, tips on finding a job, and help with employment and volunteer applications.

This promise of employment must be on company letterhead and signed by an employer representative.
