Interview Skills Training for Philadelphia High School Students

The Interviewing Skills Workshops provide a forum for members who are passionate about giving back by training Philadelphia high school students or providing free classroom space in the Center City area. It is rewarding for the facilitators and equips students with a skill of life-long value.

Interviewing Skills Workshops:

Are you looking for a way to give back to the community? Here is a way to have a lasting impact with a minimal time commitment: teach interviewing skills to Philadelphia High School students. The workshops take half a day and are held in locations predominantly in Center City. The materials are already developed, tried, and tested. Feel the satisfaction that comes from watching young people learn and acquire new skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. 

The workshops will take place in January, February and March 2016. You can facilitate one or more workshops.  Our longtime partner, the Philadelphia Academies, is a not-for-profit dedicated to providing students with access to business opportunities in the area. Once the dates are set, we will send them out and post them on the PSPS website so you can sign up. To participate as a facilitator, you just need either training, facilitation or interviewing experience. We will hold training for new volunteers in December. 

Our past volunteers have made all the difference in making this program a huge success and we are looking forward to partnering with you all again in the future!

If you would like to be a facilitator or participate in the orientation, please click on the application link below or email Diera Shaw -Mendez, Business Partner Specialist, Philadelphia Academies, at and let her know.

We also need venues in center city for our workshops. If your organization can volunteer space that can accommodate about 35 students for our half-day programs, please contact Diera by Dec. 19, 2015.

Please feel free to call a committee member if you have any questions:
