be a career coach
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life
by what we give." -Winston Churchill
The most influential 15 minutes of your week... As a Career Coach with F4K, you can provide feedback and encouragement for students interested in what it is you do (and have done)--what you like best, how you got there and why. In just a few minutes a week, you can make an impact on a child's future while offering guidance to our future workforce. Everything is online so you can answer questions when your schedule permits, wherever you have an internet connection!
Make the local connection...Consider Work-Based Learning opportunities in your community, including job shadowing, mock interviews or being a classroom speaker. Why Work-Based Learning? It's a chance to connect the real world and the classroom, reaching the students who are our future workforce and providing a context of relevance that makes education an opportunity rather than an obligation.
Why F4K?...Businesses want to help, educators need volunteers, but no one has the time to track each other down. Using F4K's web-based infrastructure and existing network, participants can determine their availability, students can search for opportunities, and educators can coordinate it all simply and virtually. A win for everyone, especially North Carolina.
Your tax-deductible donation allows Futures for Kids to continue providing critical support and resources to students across North Carolina at no charge to schools, ensuring every student access to guidance and mentorship. Help us shape the next generation.
