Volunteers will meet with their assigned group and share, discuss their career journeys. Topics should include: mistakes/miscalculations made along the career journey, challenges along the career journey, their passions/motivations and how those steered them along the career journey, how they came to discover their passions/motivations, how school played a role in their career journey, what activities, clubs, sports, and service clubs played a significant role. Volunteers will engage in a round table discussion about their career journeys with six students in five or six groups. Students will be privy to volunteer bios.
