These sessions are highly interactive and bring relevance into the classroom, introduce students to role models, and inspire them towards careers they may never have known about or that they thought were unattainable.
“Winning a REVERE Award is an extraordinary honor for our team at Nepris,” said Sabari Raja, co-founder and CEO of Nepris. “Every day, we match up teachers with experts and professionals who inspire students to dream big. This honor has also inspired us to dream even bigger, knowing that Nepris is changing students’ lives and helping them see career possibilities they may never have considered.”
Teachers can try Nepris for free and also view an unlimited number of archived videos of past sessions in the library or, sign up to request an individual speaker to meet virtually with the classroom. Industry groups and professionals also regularly offer sessions on timely topics such as The Rocky Road to Medical School, Volcano Explorers, and Television News from Beginning to (Possibly) the End.
