I love this unique real-world learning opportunity from the South Milwaukee School District. And they need your help!
From Chris Daniels, work-based learning coordinator for the district and youth apprenticeship coordinator for the South Shore Suburban Consortium …
South Milwaukee High School will be hosting an Academic and Career Planning day for juniors and seniors on Tuesday, April 9. Part of the day will focus on a “Reality Check” event where every junior at SMHS will be introduced to real life financial scenarios to enhance their financial literacy and prepare for life after high school. Using an app on a smart phone or tablet, students will move around the field house to nine different stations where volunteers will present various scenarios such as car payments, rent, entertainment, health expenses, etc.
20 more volunteers are still needed to make this event possible. Volunteers should plan to arrive at 7:15 for a continental breakfast and training about their roles for the event. No advanced preparation is required, just a willingness to work with students and help them on their pathways. The event will conclude at 11:00.
If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please e-mail Chris Daniels or call him at 414-766-5140.
Also during the morning and afternoon of April 9, the high school will be hosting a career and college fair for juniors and seniors where businesses, trades, and colleges can meet with students to talk about job openings, as well as career and education opportunities.
