Mock Interviews with Ben Franklin Jr. High School Students
As a volunteer interviewer, you will conduct mock interviews with students and provide feedback. These mock interviews will help students boost confidence, reduce anxiety & stress, and receive constructive feedback, all in preparation for a future job.
A Reality Shop is a budgeting exercise for high school students, giving them an example of what situations they may experience after high school. Based on a students’ career aspirations, they will be given three job offers to choose from. Using their chosen offer and annual wage, the student must complete a monthly budget.
Business volunteers at the Reality Shop play the role of vendors, selling cars, homes, insurance, luxury items, etc. to the students. Volunteers are crucial to providing a memorable and educational experience for the students.
