Make the Connection

The Goal

Every seventh grader in a JCPS middle school gets to meet with a professional from the community to hear about his or her career.

The Need

1,200 citizens to each give one hour of his or her time

The Details

Make the Connection is offered in October, and there are flexible locations and times. It's a fulfilling experience for volunteers to connect with students at a transitional point in their lives.
