This year, we are offering a hybrid option – alumni can choose to participate in-person or virtually through Google Classrooms. 

Please submit this interest form by October 27th. (Google Account required to complete form)

This program, now in its 25th year, has been a success in the past due to the contributions of alumni like you who are willing to give back whether financially or through volunteering your time at events like this to make a significant impact on current and future generations of students.

Assignments of class sessions between 9am-3pm EST will be provided at a later date through CHS Administration and CHS Career Day student coordinators.

Support this program with a sponsorship – this will help to sustain the resources needed for this annual event. 

Many employers double or triple an employee’s contributions to their favorite non-profit(s), so be sure to check our employer match giving page to see if your company qualifies.

Contact the Alumni Office to secure a sponsorship or submit payment here.

We look forward to seeing many of you again for Career Day. Thank you!
