Visiting Professionals Program
  1. Value Schools

    Value Schools invites professionals from various career fields and backgrounds to speak to our students about their work and experiences. 

    We know the opportunity to witness first-hand testimony about real careers from actual, relatable professionals helps students focus their lives as they prepare for adulthood.

    Students strengthen ties with their local community, and most importantly are motivated to become successful and valuable members of society after graduation, wherever they may go.

    Our guests visit on weekdays and speak to students for 45-60 minutes.

    If you or someone you know are interested and available to participate in what could be a life-changing event for our students, please fill out the form below.
