City of San Diego to Offer Citywide Speakers Bureau
SAN DIEGO - The City of San Diego now offers a citywide Speakers' Bureau available to schools, community groups and organizations. The Speaker's Bureau is an outreach program that will educate students, teachers and community partners about City services, programs, resources, facilities and careers.
"This is a great opportunity for students and teachers to see areas of study put to practical use," says Speakers Bureau Coordinator, HasanYousef. "Community groups can also use this resource to learn more about City services and events."
Students will get an inside look at the City of San Diego through the use of presentations, interactive classroom discussions and activities conducted by City professionals. With such diverse fields as wildlife biology, arson investigation, forensic pathology and website design, the city is a mini-version of today's current issues and career opportunities.
This is the first phase of an outreach program which the City hopes to expand to include other activities to increase citizens' awareness of the City's services, programs and career opportunities. For more information on the City of San Diego Speakers Bureau contact Hasan Yousef, 619 527-7507.
