Camden City Public Schools Prepare for the World of Work

May 1st – 31st, 2019 Career Awareness Month

 CCSD is hosting its annual career awareness month, May 1st  – May 31st, 2019. It is our vision to prepare students that are college bound and career ready. In order to achieve this vision, we need the assistance of our parents, community members, and public figures, so that together we may educate students on the importance of furthering their education and the vast career opportunities that are open to them. Therefore, we cordially invite you to participate in one of two ways:

 

Classroom Presentation: Classroom presentations will take place the entire month in ten district schools. Presentations should be between 30 minutes in length.  You will present to students in grades K-12, family school (K-8) or high school (9-12). The recommended format includes: related school subjects, education/training, personal skills necessary in your field, typical day in your field, hands on activities or visuals, etc. We would certainly like for you to spend the day with us, but we will work around your schedule, and we appreciate any time that you may be able to dedicate to this very rewarding experience.

Careers on Wheels: We are seeking parents, community members, and local businesses that would like to spend a few hours with us, bring their work vehicle, and talk to our students about what they do for a living. This event will be held in bus lanes, parking lot, or field.  We will advise you of location on campus closer to the day of the event, this will vary by school. Students will visit each vehicle as a class and engage in a presentation. Participants are expected to provide information about the career along with realia, promotional/marketing materials, and representatives to engage in dialogue with our students during the presentations. Careers on Wheels dates are listed on page two.

 If you are willing to commit to one, or both parts of this event please complete a letter of commitment and return it by email at ljames@camden.k12.nj.us or sign up online on our district website by Friday May 10th, 2019. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Larry James, M.S. GC, EDL Senior Director, Student Services at 856-298-9091 or email at ljames@camden.k12.nj.us.
