You can determine how often you would like to volunteer based on your schedule. Some volunteers participate twice a year, others once a month.
Once you have completed our volunteer application and orientation, you will have monthly opportunities to connect one-on-one with job seekers. These opportunities are mostly virtual, and can be in-person when it is safe to do so.
Our candidates come from over 150 countries and bring diverse educational and professional backgrounds. Approximately 75% of our job seekers are people of color, 50% are women, and 40% have STEM training. Our job seekers are immigrants, refugees, and asylees who are new to the U.S. and have lived here for 7 years or less. They are fully work authorized.
