Volunteers Needed for College & Career Event!

Location: Monterey Park CA, 91754

Date: 10/17/2019 Spots Remaining: 7

Description

Title: Help students and their families learn more about opportunities to access higher education and careers!

Quick Overview: On Set-up Day, help us prepare for the event by filling tote bags with college and career resources for students and their families. On Days 1 & 2, volunteers assist with tasks such as directing school bus arrivals, orienting students, monitoring foot traffic in hallways, directing presenters to classrooms, and/or checking in exhibitors.

Organization name and website: L.A. Cash for College

Broader Program Description: L.A. Cash for College increases college access and success by informing, assisting and rewarding program participants. It has successfully assisted over 289,000 students in preparing for college and applying for financial aid at our annual college and career convention. This year, we are excited to partner with Univision to bring a new level of excitement and motivation to students and families as they consider their postsecondary options.

Impact: Last year we were pleased to host approximately 6,000 diverse, qualified and committed students—many of whom would become first generation college students—along with parents, caregivers, and community members. Over 3 million dollars in scholarships have been granted to local youth since the inception of the program. This event cannot be a success without the support of dedicated volunteers.

Volunteer Roles: We are currently seeking volunteers to serve in a variety of roles, including assisting with pre-event set-up, bus arrivals, greeting and ushering students, and other support roles. Volunteers can serve during one or more shifts:

  • Set-up Day, 10/17 from 1-5pm
  • Day 1, 10/18 from 7am-1pm
  • Day 2, 10/19 from 8am-2pm

Requirements: No previous experience necessary - comfort in interacting with high school students and bilingual skills are a plus.

Additional Details: The event will take place at East Los Angeles College at 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park, CA 91754. Free onsite parking will be provided. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided. As a token of appreciation, all volunteers will be entered in a prize drawing to win gift cards and other items. If you have any questions regarding volunteering, please contact Dinan Guan at dguan@lachamber.com.

Accessibility: Our organization strives to accommodate different mobility levels, language, and any other arrangements volunteers need to successfully complete this service. Please let us know in advance what accomodations you may need.

We thank you for your participation in this historic effort to expand access to higher education and to build the future of our city.
