Getting a job can transform someone’s life, enabling a family to move toward greater stability. The Care Center’s Employment Services helps guests navigate the journey to employment through classes, workshops and one-on-one counseling. As an Employment volunteer, you will come alongside job seekers to offer support as they work toward their goal of finding a job.
Employment Services relies on a team of skilled volunteers who serve in two roles:
One-on-One Counselors meet with a guest for a consultation tailored to their individual needs and situation (job search, resume writing, interview skills, etc…)
Group Facilitators provide support during employment classes, support groups and workshops as well as in the Computer Lab.
Employment counseling takes place at the Care Center on Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. and 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., as well as on Sundays from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.
Employment classes and workshops are held on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m.
If you would like to join the Employment Services volunteer team, sign up for an upcoming Volunteer Orientation. Orientation dates can be seen below.
