Local Business Leaders Needed for the


Norcross High School
Career Exploration Night


Career Exploration Night is our chance as a business community to help local high school students prepare for a future in our local and global community. Many of our students are unfamiliar with all of the career path opportunities that are open to them...if they are prepared to enter them. Many don't have access to career professionals to ask questions that may guide their education and skill development choices.

Sponsor a Booth and participate in the Career Panels to Showcase Your Company/Profession at Career Exploration Night — A Great Opportunity to interact with local High School Students and Parents

The Norcross HS Career Exploration Night is our chance to provide students with a glimpse into the different career opportunities and what education and skills are required to enter those careers. Think about your own career path. Did you have a clue to what career alternatives might be available to you? What education you might need? What skills you could develop to be successful? 

By volunteering to sponsor a Career Booth and/or participate in one of the following panel discussions, you can be that source of information for a new generation. Share your experience about the joys and challenges you've had in your chosen field with this new generation. Their Future (and ours) depends on it! Volunteer now and these FOUR hours of your life will make an impact that will extend into your future.
