We had a lovely kick off for the Staten Island Career Coaches today, March 4th, 2010. Check out their blog: http://sicareercoaches.blogspot.com/p/about-career-coaches_05.html
They did a compelling presentation of their life stories to the students. They spoke to 30 seniors during 1st and 2nd period and then 30 juniors during 4th and 5th period. Then they had break out sessions in which they spoke to their small groups about their goals and interests. The Staten Island Career Coaches are an outgrowth of the PENCIL.org program, principal for a day.
The Staten Island Career Coaches will be doing 2 more seminars and then they will evaluate to see what will be the next steps in creating a viable job shadowing experience. The next sessions will be March 11th and March 18th. It is so cool.
As soon as I get pictures, I will then post them.
