Career Fair at Warren G. Harding Middle School


Thu, April 26, 2018
8:30 AM - 2:00 PM

2000 Wakeling Street
Philadelphia, PA,19124

Harding Middle School, serving a high poverty student body, wants to expose its 7th and 8th graders to as many career options as possible before they start high school and commit to any specialized tracks or programs. The school is looking for volunteers to spend the day in the school gym while a few hundred middle school students cycle through the fair. The students will be prepared to interview people about their professions, their career paths, and the necessary education, training, and skill sets to achieve success. Volunteers from all professions are welcome (e.g., musicians, mechanics, farmers, artists, designers, accountants, engineers, scientists, health care professionals, chefs, etc.). Hands-on activities and demonstrations are encouraged.

Lunch will be provided. There will be raffle prizes to encourage the students to participate. Your company is welcome to donate a prize (t-shirts, gift cards, swag, etc.), too.
