Vaux Exhibitions
 
Vaux BPHS Student Exhibitions: The Student Exhibition of Learning takes place over the course of one week at the end of each trimester. Each student presents their learning over the course of the trimester to their classmates in Advisory, family members, Mentors and other adult volunteers. Each of those who observe an Exhibition give feedback to the exhibiting student that he or she takes back to their Advisor to include in their personal learning plan. Your volunteer service is essential to the personal and academic growth of our students. Come and help our students discover their pathway!  Click the image above to find out more and RSVP.

El C Demo Day
 
El Centro de Estudiantes Demonstration Day: "Gateway" students, who are in their first trimester at el Centro, are required to successfully complete a sort of Mock Interview in order to move on to our signature Learning Through Internships program. This is a wonderful event that cannot function without volunteers, who spend 20-30 minutes 1-on-1 with a series of students; you will review their portfolio, answer questions they have prepared, and generally give advice around professionalism and presentation.  Click the image above to RSVP!
