a Volunteer

Our volunteers play an integral role in preparing our Members for the job-search process and reinforcing the soft skills they will need to thrive in a professional setting.

Volunteers assist in a range of activities, including:

  • Teach a session of our JumpStart job-search-readiness workshop – managing finances, budgeting and networking
  • Mock interviews
  • Job search assistance
  • Job fairs
  • Special events

Get Started

Most of our volunteer activities are in one-on-one or small-group settings, but we have accommodated some larger groups for one-day activities. For more information on volunteer opportunities, contact:
