Volunteers engage in one or more of the JAG classrooms to deliver a brief presentation about their company, college, or career path. Presentations may be 45 to 75 minutes in length depending upon the school for in-person presentations. Volunteers interested in and willing to share a personal story about their career path are encouraged to do so. With JAG currently working 100% virtual, we are also welcoming guest speakers! If you are interested in presenting 15-minute presentation(s) about your industry knowledge, employment opportunities, and other career advice, please attend one of our upcoming New Volunteer Orientation meetings! These 90-minute interactive classrooms introduce the JAG program, detail presentation content ideas, and answer any questions you may have. Please complete this RSVP form
to sign up for our February 8, 2021 New Volunteer Orientation, or another held later this spring!
JAG students benefit greatly from an opportunity to see a variety of working environments and college campuses. Partners may choose to host a group of JAG students at their location to tour, listen to employee presentations, participate in short-term job shadowing, etc.
Our Coordinators will work with your company’s’ volunteers to schedule presentations at a date and time that works for both parties. Coordinators manage the logistics related to any off-campus experiences, including: transportation, lunch (if not provided by the company), liability release signatures, etc.
JAG Partners are encouraged to share entry level employment opportunities and encourage JAG students and graduates to apply. JAG recommends presenting students with both immediate and long-term opportunities to support career pathway development.
JAG relies on more than 100 volunteers to support this event, including workshop presenters, competitive event judges, day-of logistics volunteers, and more. Career Development Conference season is in full effect as we prepare for over 800 students, volunteers and guests to converge on the Mesa Convention Center on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 for our annual conference.
