7th Annual Hoboken High School Junior Prep Day - May 26 8:30am-12pm

Here is a note from BOE VP Theresa Minutillo on Hoboken High School's Junior prep day coming soon:

7th Annual Hoboken High School Junior Prep Day
May 26th from 8:30am - 12:00pm

Can a few hours change a life? Absolutely!

Have you ever wanted to give back to the community but didn’t know how? So did I, that's why 7 years ago I created the Senior/Junior Prep Day, an exciting volunteer effort to bring together various members of the community to meet with the junior class of Hoboken High School to help them plan the next phase in their lives. Volunteers from all walks of life gather in the High School gym to meet with the students (either one on one or in small groups) to discuss resume writing, interview techniques, what to wear to a first interview or just to chat about your job.

Participating in Junior Prep Day is your chance to really make a difference in the life of a Hoboken High School Junior! Come share your life experience with some fresh young faces….you won’t regret it. Guaranteed!

Whether you are self-employed or work for a corporation, artist or athletic director, banker or hair stylist, have worked for two years or about to retire, you have something vital to share with these students…your experience! Everything you have learned along the way can be of interest to someone starting out! Most important is having a wide variety of volunteers on that day to give the students an idea of the opportunities open to them.

In return, you will meet some amazing, talented, intelligent and motivated kids looking for some pointers and direction. If previous Junior Prep Days are any indication, it is an experience you won’t soon forget.


Please join us on Wednesday, May 26th at 8:30am in the High School Gymnasium. The students will arrive between 9am and 12pm. Hoboken High School is located on 9th and Clinton Streets in Hoboken.

Please extend this invitation to your co-workers, relatives, neighbors or anyone else you think would be interested in spending three hours to change a life.

For further information or to R.S.V.P. please contact

Hope you see you there!
