The SCV School & Business Alliance is looking for local business and community leaders who would be willing to share a Saturday morning giving local young people some insight into their chosen careers and professions.

Presenters are needed for "Discovering Careers-2009," the Santa Clarita Valley's hands-on career exploration program planned for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 25 at College of the Canyons.

The expo is sponsored by the Alliance in conjunction with the Hart School District, COC. Boston Scientific, the Chancellor's Office, California Community Colleges, and KHTS radio.
