Cool Women, Hot Jobs
Cool Women, Hot Jobs (CWHJ) is a program in a series of signature career-day events at The Women’s Leadership Schools that seeks to expose sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students to professionals in various careers. We believe that if you can see it, you can be it. Volunteers visit the schools to speak with students about their college and career paths, and to share lessons for success. Volunteers are able to engage directly with students in small groups during two morning periods at the beginning of the school day. In turn, students have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from volunteers.
