Connectors

Fill out this form to volunteer to be a Boombox Connector. 

  1. Once we receive your application, we will send you instructions on how to get background checked. There is no cost and you can do the entire process on your computer. You will just have to provide full name, dob, current address, phone # and SS#. 

  2. After your background check has cleaared, Boombox will provide you a short bio of 1 or 2 students, including a list of the careers they want to explore.

  3. You scan your network for a Speaker in one of the listed careers. If you cannot find anyone in your own network with the desired background, you send an enquiry out to BOoM to see if any one else can find someone to fit the bill. 

  4. Once a Speaker has been confirmed, Boombox helps schedule the meeting to match the availability of all the participants.  (If you are not the Speaker or the Facilitator, your own attendance is optional but highly recommended)

  5. You speak with the student after each meeting to ascertain the most appropriate next step.  Each student is different.  For some students, several of these quick but personalized peeks into selected industries are all they need to help them refine their plans for study and career.  Other students may need more guidance.  You help them think through their options. 

  6. If a student indicates s/he would like to delve deeper into a particular career, you ask the Speaker how s/he might help the student further.  This may include introductions to other professionals in this field, providing opportunities for job-shadowing, and hosting formal or informal internships. 

  7. If a student seems to need on-going mentorship, Boombox has established partnerships with local youth mentorship programs, and can help the student enter a suitable program.
