The HCOE Education at Work program, in partnership with Humboldt State University, College of the Redwoods, North Coast Cal-SOAP, the Arcata and Eureka Chambers of Commerce, and local Rotary clubs, are collaborating to bring community guests into local high school and college classes using distance learning platforms.
Virtual classes offer teachers an opportunity to bring a wide range of community guests into their classes to meet and share information with students. HCOE has created a database of community members who have volunteered to share their expertise with students. Teachers can browse the database to find speakers to virtually visit their classes.
Note: The database is password protected. If you are a teacher interested in accessing it, please contact Jim Ritter at email@example.com.
The Career Speaker Series began with panels of local business leaders and others sharing advice with students. We recorded several of these hour-long panels and condensed them down into shorter highlight videos.
