The IIT Boeing Scholars Academy is seeking volunteers to help prepare high school students for college interviews. IIT Boeing Scholars will be interviewing with real college admissions representatives during the Chicago Scholars Onsite event at the end of October. Many colleges and universities offer admission and make award decisions based on these interviews, so we’re excited to prepare our students for this event! Please join us by volunteering as a practice interviewer.

 

Who: Any adult who wants to support talented students’ paths to college. No special skills  

 

What: A Mock Interview Session to prepare Chicago-area students for college interviews.   

 

When: Sunday, October 12. Volunteer orientation begins at 2:00 pm. Mock interviews will take place between 2:30 and 4:00 pm. A reception with light snacks and refreshments will be provided from 4:00 pm-5:00 pm.

 

Where: The MTCC Ballroom, Illinois Tech Main Campus, 3201 S State St.

 

Why: To increase IIT Boeing Scholars’ confidence and ability to articulate their strengths, and to connect high school students with caring college students and professionals.

 

How: If you’re interested in volunteering as a practice interviewer, please register here or click on the button below. Because we are working with youth under the age of 18, all registered volunteers must participate in a free, mandatory criminal background check. After registering, volunteers will receive an email from HireRight with instructions on completing a criminal background check. It's easy and free of cost to you, we promise.
