During the week of January 22 - January 26 Citizen Schools welcomed over 80 volunteers to the Trotter Innovation School and Edwards Middle School in Boston, and the Browne Middle School in Chelsea to participate in Mock Interview Days.
Bob Morgan, President of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, recently visited the Citizen Schools program at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School and filmed our students in action (video below). On Tuesday, January 24, eighth-grade students participated in mock interviews with volunteers as part of a larger curriculum focused on preparing the students for high school, college and career success. These lessons culminate in a showcase event, 6 Degrees of Charlotte, during which the students will network with local business professionals to get advice on how to build and leverage their own network to achieve their future goals.
Do you have advice to share with them? Register for the February 2nd event today online - www.6degreesofcharlotte.org.
We would like to extend a special thanks to the volunteers who assisted with the mock interviews last Tuesday: Michael Juby, Parker Poe; Chuck Cocke & Nanelle Napp, Bank of America; and Adeola Fearon, MyOla Creations.
