We need businesses to present to 7th grade students on REAL jobs in Centralia. Please contact us if you can help: 618-532-6789 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a two part program with Centralia Junior High School...
February 4 - Businesses give 5 min. presentation to classes about REAL jobs in our community. They talk about daily workflow, types of employment opportunities, and education levels required.
Morning Classes - 9:00am - 11:15pm (three 45 min. classes)
Afternoon Classes - 12:00pm - 2:15pm (three 45 min. classes)
February 11 - Then the businesses come back to meet with a small group of students (selected from level of interest from first week's presentations) about a REAL situation or problem to solve. Same class times!
Last year, the projects (problem solving) were:
Business to business sales - what items to choose and what configuration for client
Communication - healthcare topics to communicate to the public
Civil Engineering - given the layout of a parking lot that was being resurfaced
Warehouse Logistics - warehouse layout, workflow, supply, forklifts, and delivery
