Teach resume building skills to homeless youth ages 18-24. Teach them the format and the do's and dont's of resume writing.
Mission or Broader Program Description:
Jovenes is a non-profit that works with homeless youth ages 18-24 to end their cycle of homelessness. Jovenes provides our youth with a variety of different housing programs, employment resources and opportunities, academic support, life skills training, mental health support, and more. Our mission is to help youth become integrated and active members in our community.
By volunteering with us and helping our youth write their resume, you are building their foundation of getting employed. Without a good resume and without the knowledge of creating a resume, youth have a hard time getting employment. Yet if they aren't employed they won't be able to pay their own rent and bills. It is one thing to help them with housing, but it is another to have them maintain and become self-sufficient adults. The key to that is employment and that is why we need you to help us teach them about employment skills!
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities:
Our youth typically have short attention span and need someone extremely engaging to interact with. Someone who can say jokes (appropriately) but also be professional and productive with staying on tasks and getting important information across. The more engagement and activities the better.
Must be 25+ years old. Must have extensive knowledge and/or experience with resume building and writing. Must be able to have clear communication. Must be engaging.
Our youth have been through a lot and need understanding, patience, and compassion.
