Hello City Year Alumni,
On February 24th, 2012 City Year Los Angeles corps members will be participating in a day of job shadowing and career exploration as part of "Leadership after City Year” (LACY) programming. Job shadowing and informational interviews are an excellent way for them to explore future career paths and expand their professional network.
We are inviting all Los Angeles alumni to help make this a meaningful experience for our corps members. There are several ways you can get involved:
1. Host a job shadow – Host a corps member for a half- or full-day as you go about your daily responsibilities, giving the corps members an insider's perspective to potential career paths and various industries.
2. Host a tour of your workplace – Are you able to provide a tour of your organization/company to a small group of corps members? This is a great way to learn about future employment opportunities and understand what they're looking for in their career.
3. Lead a presentation or information session on 2/24/12 – Our corps members' job shadow experiences will be supplemented with sessions at the CYLA office on different academic and career opportunities, as well as mock interviews. If you're free that day, your expertise and insight would be much appreciated.
4. Busy on February 24th? – Let us know if you may be interested in supporting our corps members in their LACY plans on a different day as there will be future opportunities to get involved.
Thank you so much for your consideration, the perspective you bring as CY alumni is so valuable in their LACY planning.
