Volunteer with PREP-KC to Inspire Students

PREP-KCResearch shows that students who participate in career exploration programs are more engaged in school, have higher graduation rates, and are more likely to pursue postsecondary education.

Career Jumping is a fast-paced career exploration experience (set up like speed-dating) where professionals talk with 3-5 students in six-minute increments to share their career stories. Unless otherwise noted, PREP-KC is seeking volunteers from Arts, Communications, Health, Human Services, Business, IT, Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Trades, and other related fields for all Career Jumping events.  Join our friends from PREP-KC at an event listed below to help urban students discover their future potential!
