Over the next six weeks, students at Carver Middle School will have the opportunity to sit down face-to-face in small groups with adults from the community who are employed in the careers that the students are interested in pursuing. The CIS Lunch Bunch Program will bring in a different adult each week exploring careers from crime scene investigation to culinary arts. The students are selected based on their stated career interest and meet with the presenter during lunch.
This week, the students met with Jack Armstrong, a firefighter from the Monroe Fire Department. Mr. Armstrong talked with the students about the training required for the job, starting salary and what it is like to work at the Fire Department. The series will run on Wednesdays through April.
Site Coordinator Amy Hunnewell facilitates the program. "This is a great way for students to begin to understand what the world of work is really like," She said. "It helps them see how their school work is related to their future."
