Career Mentoring Program

Last fall we held our first-ever career fair for Chicago Scouts and high school students.  We had over 25 professionals on hand to provide the youth an opportunity to learn from adult experts about careers in a number of different industries. 

We would like to continue providing this type of mentoring to Chicago Scouts and high school students by creating a network of professionals who would be willing to travel to local schools to do a short presentation (no more than one hour total) about their industry and career interests. 

This program will be conducted in conjunction with the council’s Career Exploring program.  We will utilize a career interest survey to determine which industries the students are most interested in so we are able to coordinate appropriate speakers.  The program would be open to all students (male and female) and, if allowed by the school, Scouts who are at least 14 years old. 

Currently we are gathering information on professionals who would be interested in participating in this program by speaking at a school once or twice a year.  If you are interested, please visit and fill out our brief survey.
