PSPS partners with the Philadelphia Academies to offer half day interviewing skills workshops for high school juniors to help prepare them for college interviews, summer jobs, and jobs when they graduate. Our longtime partner, the Philadelphia Academies, is a not-for-profit dedicated to providing students with access to business opportunities in the area. Annually, PSPS helps facilitate 12-15 workshops using approximately 25 PSPS volunteers.  The workshops train approximately 300 students between January and March each year. The materials are already developed, tried, and tested. If you have conducted training or recruited, you have what we are looking for to be a facilitator!  Volunteers work with 1-2 other PSPS members in facilitating the workshops, so it is a great opportunity to work together and get to know other members. Students tell us that it is an enjoyable and invaluable experience, and that the skills they learn will be very useful to them in many ways.
