Career Café is an opportunity for students in 4th and 5th grade to meet individuals from the community and learn about their careers. Students are invited to Career Café based on their interests. Career Café is comprised of two lunch periods at each site and serves approximately 100 students total each week.
Career Café speakers have the option to speak at Pike Lake Elementary School, BayView Elementary School or both. BayView's career cafes will take place on Thursdays from 11:40-12:30. Pike Lake's career cafes will take place on Wednesdays from 11:30-12:30. Speakers share their career journey with students, including how they became interested in their current field, what education/training they needed, what they do in a typical day at their job, and any advice to students considering a job in their field. Speakers will speak to students for about 20-25 minutes including time for questions and answers.
Speakers are encouraged to bring props and/or actual items they use in their job.
