Mentor Students for a Day
We love connecting our students with various different types of professionals that can mentor them in their collegiate pursuits. Let’s Get Ready offers one-day volunteer events where you can work with one or a few students to provide invaluable help with their college applications, finding that first job, or choosing a career track. It’s also a great opportunity to network with the other like minded professionals investing their time in our organization.
Career Day: July 29, 2017, NYU
Career Day events allow workforce professionals to share their experience with motivated college students while answering their burning questions. It is a critical opportunity for students to workshop resumes and learn helpful networking skills. Often, they need advice how to present and brand themselves, how to talk about their strengths, and what not to say. This event is a wonderful opportunity for professionals to help students find their networking and resume voices.
College Application Completion Day: October 2017, day TBD
College Application Completion Day events are dedicated to helping high school students conquer the most difficult aspects of the admissions process. From fine-tuning essays and application forms to providing guidance on scholarships and financial aid, your help will play a key role in ensuring that our students land at the school that is best for them.
Let Students Know About Your Profession
As we help our students up their SAT scores and ready their essays, Let’s Get Ready strives to show them many of the paths that they can take with their education. One way this is accomplished is through corporate volunteering, in which a professional organization can teach our students about its inner workings and demands of its field. We love working with a variety of companies to devise events that will inspire not just our students, but employees as well.
