Career mentoring program in need of part-time activities director

Published: Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 08:57 AM.

Florida High School/High Tech is a career mentoring program for students with disabilities at the Port St. Joe High School.  For the past seven years, Florida HS/HT has provided students with speakers and training concerning job readiness and careers, career shadowing opportunities, and summer job internships.

This past year Lynn Hauck has been our Activities Director and has done an outstanding job.  She is leaving the program to be more involved with her new grandchild and with travel plans.  She will help train and support the new Activities Director.

The position of Activities Director requires 30-35 hours each month with flexible hours working with the high school students and/or identifying and scheduling career shadowing, field trips, the tech fair and summer internships.  Applicants must have experience working with teen age students and be enthusiastic and a structured individual.  Organizational abilities are a major part of the position. 

Typically, the Activities Director meets with students at the high school four to six times a month either individually or in groups.  Other responsibilities involve reports of activities and participants and working within the community to schedule activities and shadowing and career opportunity internships.

We have seen young people’s lives change dramatically as they have become aware and involved in community service and in developing the skills for future careers.  If you want to be a part of this growth and have the experience and background necessary, please contact Dr. Patricia K. Hardman at 229-7799, Lynn Hauck at 340-1823 or email
