Beyond Jobs Volunteer
Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with men ages 22-35 as they become leaders in their workplace, community + families. Job & Leadership Training (JLT) has a variety of opportunities for volunteers.
As a JLT Mentor, you will be paired with a student in our Job & Leadership Training Program for one hour a week to help address roadblocks that are preventing them from being successful in the workplace + community.
We are looking for professionals who are comfortable leading out a small group of students during Monday evening classes. The classes focus on job training skills, ranging from resume basics to soft skills required for success in the workplace.
On Monday + Thursday evenings we provide dinner for the students. The meals offer a time for community building as students + volunteers develop relationships over a nice meal. We need volunteers willing to either cook a meal, purchase food from a local restaurant or to provide money for the cost of a meal.
Beyond School Volunteer
As a Beyond School Volunteer, you will work directly with the students focusing on anything from math + literacy + homework help, to participating in or leading enrichment activities such as yoga, spoken word or chemistry. You will be trained to deliver individualized assistance, ensuring structured academic time is impactful.
