RISE! Guest Speaker Training
Our RISE! volunteer guest speakers work with high school girls, grades 9th-12th.
We are looking for women with diverse backgrounds to talk with RISE! groups at Houston-area high schools. Classes are usually 60 minutes long between 8am and 3pm.
There are two speaking opportunities for RISE!:
Career Path Panel: A panel of two to three professionals discuss their career experiences with students. Coworkers and friends can volunteer together, or we will match you with other panelists.
Credit and Savings Speaker: Guest speakers will receive a copy of our ‘Credit and Saving Instructor Guide’ for this class. This opportunity is best suited for one person or a two-person team.
To be able to participate as a RISE! guest speaker, you must first go through training. RISE! Guest Speaker training is offered bi-annually and is required to become a RISE! volunteer. During this one and a half-hour training you will learn techniques for engaging high school students, how to sign-up for RISE! volunteer opportunities, and an overview of the RISE! curriculum.
