Frisco ISD currently has an opportunity for you to give your time to our future workforce! Professionals in a variety of industries are needed.
The ISM Professional Symposium event will be held at Panther Creek High School on Thursday, October 5, 2023. There will be a morning session from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM (CHS, EHS, HHS, IHS, LHS, LTHS) and an afternoon session from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (FHS, LSHS, MHS, PCHS, RHS, WHS). You can participate in one or both.
As a volunteer for the ISM Symposium, you will be asked to participate in a meet and greet with students and then facilitate 15-minute mock interviews.
If you are available and interested in either or both opportunities, please follow the directions below. (Please note: you won’t be able to actually sign up until your application and background check are complete. You will have two separate steps.)
Frisco ISD has put together step-by-step instructions to obtain a background check and to sign up for the ISM Professional Symposium. Please follow the detailed instructions closely!

On a Personal Note
I’ve consistently attended the ISM Professional Symposium over the years. Despite its timing during my busy periods, I find it immensely rewarding. Having been both a mentor to a student now in grad school and a parent of an ISM graduate who’s become a nurse, I’ve gained unique perspectives on the program. It stands as one of the most fulfilling experiences in my career.
Additional opportunities to mentor students are available too! If you’re interested in mentoring a high school or college student, visit our Intern/Mentor database to help students find you.
After participating in this event and/or serving as a mentor, I know you’ll agree…our future looks pretty bright!
