Volunteers needed for Career Panels
The panels will provide our students with information about future career pathways. Catholic Central can’t begin to offer courses in all content areas. Informing students through career panels based on career pathways would expose students to consider many careers. There are 16 career clusters and your current job fits into one of the clusters.
- Agriculture, Good and Natural Resources
- Architecture & Construction
- Arts, A/V Technology & Communication
- Business Management & Administration
- Education & Training
- Government & Public Administration
- Health Sciences
- Hospitality & Tourism
- Human Services
- Information Technology
- Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security
- Science, Technology, Engineering &Mathematics
- Transportation, Distribution & Logistics
The panels will occur during the school day for 1 to 2 hours. You will be grouped with 4 or 5 other adults in the same career cluster. The panels will be informal. Information you will share: your job title, your education background and how you ended up in your current job. I hope that you will consider volunteering. We will be flexible and work with your schedules. Please respond to this email or call Jane Gabrielson at 262-763-1510 x224
