Industry-leading learning platform Nepris to host panel discussion on Virtual Volunteerism with AT&T and DECA leaders


December 3, 2021: How we connect has completely changed in 2020 and education is spotlighted, as schools bounce between virtual, hybrid, and in-person models. Meanwhile, companies struggle to keep their now-remote employees engaged. Nepris will host a panel discussion with AT&T, DECA, and Marietta, GA City Schools on how they are implementing virtual volunteerism and work-based learning programs that focus on education.
The panel will be hosted on Dec. 3, 2021 at 2 p.m. EST.

CEO and Co-Founder of Nepris, Sabari Raja, will moderate the discussion on how some corporate, intermediary, and education leaders have leveraged partnerships, out-of-the-box thinking, and technologies to ensure continuity of volunteer programs with a focus on education outreach. Work-based learning experiences such as virtual internships, career days, job shadows and mock interviews are engaging remote employees with students everywhere, bridging the gap between industry and education.

Learn best practices, lessons learned, and how to implement virtual, skills-based volunteering programs that match with employee interests and schedules, are easy for education partners, and prepare the next-gen workforce to be college and career ready.
