Please see the email request below that was sent to the info box. BCLC is looking for volunteers to do a mentor lunch next week.
I will add this to the agenda for the members meeting tonight, and hope to respond to Corrie tomorrow sometime.
We are calling for Mentors for the Discover the World of Info Tech event which will be held over 2 days this year, November 21st and 22nd, 2017 at the Henry Grube Education Centre in Kamloops BC.
The Discover the World of Info Tech event is a hands-on workshop, for students grades 8 - 10, which focuses on the benefits of a career in Information Technology. This event aims to encourage students to enroll in math, science, and technology subjects and develop a positive perception and appreciation for careers in technology.
This event is hoping to connect with students who might not have previously considered a career in IT and inspire them to consider the field in their future.
Part of each day will be spent having lunch with mentors - people who are currently working with technology - and have the opportunity to ask them questions about their job, their life, and the ups and downs.
This is where you come in! We’re hoping to get at least 34 mentors for lunch (12-1pm) on both days.
If you think this is something you would be interested in – sharing what you do and what you enjoy about IT with high school students, please
get in touch with Corrie Tucker at BCLCindicate your interest below ASAP
If interested, also please indicate which day you would be interested on mentoring for the 21st or the 22nd or both!
Please pass this along to any colleagues or friends you think would be interested in this!
