Volunteer Opportunity with Colin Powell Center:

| No Comments

Volunteer Opportunity with Colin Powell Center:

My name is Ashley Bruun and I am currently a teacher at MN International Middle School where I primarily teach students that are refugees from Eastern Africa. On February 24th, my 7th and 8th grade students will be attending a courage retreat at the Colin Powell Center in Minneapolis (address: 2924 4th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408-2438) from 8:30 am to 1:45 pm and we are seeking volunteers.

Volunteers are asked to find their own transportation to the Colin Powell Center and arrive by 7:45 am as there will be a mini small group leader orientation that is crucial to the success of the retreat. Expectations for the small group leaders include facilitating three small group discussions to their assigned group of 6 to 7 students, participate in the opening and games at the beginning of the retreat, actively engage in the topic-based talks throughout the retreat, and most importantly serve as role models for the students.

This would give you a great opportunity to learn about and work with a diverse population. Not only that, but it would be a great event that could be used to get volunteer hours and put on your resumes. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.

The courage retreat is run by an organization known as Youth Frontiers. Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, and they exist to help schools develop both smart kids and good kids. For over twenty years, Youth Frontiers has been transforming the day-to-day experience in schools across America by providing dynamic and meaningful programs designed to create a more positive school community.

They challenge students and educators to think critically about how they treat themselves and others, and inspiring the silent majority of students to help make their school a better place. If this is something you're interested in volunteering for and/or need more information you can e-mail me at ashleyb@iecmail.net or call me at 612-816-0847. Thanks in advance for your support and participation at this important event!

Courage Retreat Volunteers Needed!

| No Comments

Ashley Bruun is currently a teacher at MN International Middle School where she primarily teaches students that are refugees from Eastern Africa. On February 24th, her 7th and 8th grade students will be attending a courage retreat at the Colin Powell Center in Minneapolis (address: 2924 4th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408-2438) from 8:30 am to 1:45 pm. Volunteers are asked to find their own transportation to the Colin Powell Center and arrive by 7:45 am as there will be a mini small group leader orientation that is crucial to the success of the retreat. Expectations for the small group leaders include facilitating three small group discussions to their assigned group of 6 to 7 students, participating in the opening and games at the beginning of the retreat, actively engaging in the topic-based talks throughout the retreat, and most importantly serving as role models for the students. This would give you a great opportunity to learn about and work with a diverse population. Not only that, but it would be a great event that could be used to get volunteer hours and put on your resumes. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.

The courage retreat is run by an organization known as Youth Frontiers. Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, and they exist to help schools develop both smart kids and good kids. For over twenty years, Youth Frontiers has been transforming the day-to-day experience in schools across America by providing dynamic and meaningful programs designed to create a more positive school community. They challenge students and educators to think critically about how they treat themselves and others, and inspiring the silent majority of students to help make their school a better place. If this is something you're interested in volunteering for and/or need more information you can e-mail Ashley at ashleyb@iecmail.net or call her at 612-816-0847.

Read With Me & Read To Achieve Volunteering

| No Comments

Read With Me is a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring program through the Saint Paul Public Library. Your role as a tutor would include tutoring a 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade student in literacy skills. Reading is an essential tool to enable a person to have a successful life by allowing them to achieve in school, participate in their communities, and obtain a sustainable career. Students also benefit from having a consistent adult in his or her life. You become a positive role model, and hopefully you will create a positive relationship that both of you enjoy!

Read To Achieve is a literacy program in the Saint Paul Public Library. Tutors are paired with a student in 4th-8th grade for one hour per week. The tutor will serve as a positive mentor for the student while helping increase confidence in and enjoyment of reading. Tutors are matched at either the Rondo Community Outreach Library or the Rice Street Branch Library between the hours of 4:00 and 7:00 Mondays-Thursdays or on Sundays between 1:00 and 4:00 for one hour per week.

These are a great way to work one-on-one with a student, especially if you like to read. The library is a great, diverse place to get involved, as well.

Tutors are placed with a student and meet with them for one hour per week. Please plan on committing to the program for the duration of the semester. Pairs can meet at any of the Saint Paul Public Library branches, but flexibility on the part of the tutor is required because the student waiting list varies greatly depending on library branch and time of year. A list of the branch locations can be found at http://www.sppl.org/locations. Training and materials are provided and paid for by the Saint Paul Public Library. Finally, if the tutor is interested and the library approves, tutors can meet with one to several students on a weekly basis.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact:

Have you ever utilized the resources of CEHD career services?
I had worked with career services in the capacity of resume writing & general career advice ( such as how to choose a major), but I had never worked with career services with learning how to job search. I sat down with one of the career counselors and she taught me job searching strategies, techniques, how to look for organizations I would like to be a part of and work for. Furthermore, I learned how to identify positions that were a good fit for me.
At first it was frustrating because it was a new skill I had to learn and didn't excel in naturally. With the help of the career counselor, I felt more resilient and determined to utilize my skills and talents to find my dream job out of college!
I ended up going to a particular networking event on campus with employers, connected with several companies and ended up getting an interview with one. I also met with a recruiter from another organization and went through the application process for that job. Excitingly enough, I was offered two amazing positions out of college and had the tough decision to make between two starting careers!

Do you have any tips or words of wisdom to share with others about your experience transitioning to your first job out of college?

One word of wisdom I have for students out there is to network. The word network can be a daunting word, especially if you are introverted and find it harder to meet people. However, in today's world, it is crucial to put yourself out there and share who you are because you never know whom you will meet and what they will connect you to.
If you are intimidated by networking, start off small by asking someone to coffee to get to know them better and then work your way up to larger scale networking, such as attending a career fair or attending a networking event for a professional organization. Through networking, I've met some incredibly talented and successful people who want to help and see me succeed so I encourage you to network, early and often!
