3/12/2009:

Hoboken Board of Education member (and Kids First candidate) Theresa Minutillo would like all of you to know about the upcoming Senior Prep Day at the High School:

Can a few hours change a life? Absolutely!

“Have you ever wanted to give back to the community but didn’t know how? Participating in Senior Prep Day is your chance to really make a difference in the life of a graduating senior of Hoboken High School! Come share your life experience with some fresh young faces just starting out…. you won’t regret it. Guaranteed!

Senior Prep Day is an exciting volunteer effort to bring together various members of the community to meet with the senior and junior class of Hoboken High School to discuss the next phase in their lives. Volunteers from all walks of life gather in the High School gym to meet with the students (either one on one or in small groups) to discuss resume writing, interview techniques, what to wear to a first interview or just chat about your job.

Whether you are self-employed or work for a corporation, artist or athletic director, banker or hair stylist, have worked for two years or about to retire, you have something vital to share with these students…your experience! Everything you have learned along the way can be of interest to someone starting out! Most important is having a wide variety of volunteers on that day to give the students an idea of the opportunities open to them.

In return, you will meet some amazing, talented, intelligent and motivated kids looking for some pointers and direction. If previous Senior Prep Days are any indication, it is an experience you won’t soon forget.

Interested?

Please join us on Wednesday, April 1st at 8:30am in the High School Gymnasium. The students will arrive between 9am and 12pm. Hoboken High School is located on 9th and Clinton Streets in Hoboken.

Please extend this invitation to your co-workers, relatives, neighbors or anyone else you think would be interested in spending three hours to change a life.

For further information, please contact Theresa Minutillo at 201-795-9409 or Theresa@TheresaMinutillo.com

Hope you see you there!”

Appears that useful university of life experience is presented. I have one question: Who selects the repeating presenters? Is it one person or a committee? If it is a committee, who is on the committee? Thank you. (This inquiry was inspired by Post.68.)

I’ve been volunteering for Senior Prep day for the last three years. Theresa Minutillo was the ONLY one who reached out. I never received a flyer or information about it from any other source.

Although I’m a college graduate, I didn’t dwell on the college part. I spoke about my experiences in starting out after high school and helped them with their resumes. They must have been pleased with my input because I get invited back each year.
