Become a StreetWise Partners Mentor
|Want to make an impact on someone’s life? Become a mentor with StreetWise Partners, and use your skills to help low-income individuals secure better jobs and improve their lives.
StreetWise Partners seeks volunteers who want to leverage their professional skills and empower motivated, low-income individuals to build workplace skills and create employment networks. During our 13-week Career Ventures program, you will meet weekly with your trainee and help them learn critical job market skills including resume writing, interview preparation, computer training, career goal setting, public speaking, and business etiquette. By continuing to support your trainee for nine months after the Career Ventures program, you will also help your trainee reach their mid-term career goals.|
|Additional Skills Required:|
|Mentors will have the choice of participating in our Wednesday evening program hosted at The Gallup Organization (6:30-9:00pm, March 14th – June 6th) or our Saturday program hosted at White & Case LLP (11:30am – 2pm, March 10th – June 9th). Both of our programs are held in downtown Washington, D.C. and are very metro-accessible.
You must attend an information session on either Wednesday February 22, 6-6:45pm, or Tuesday February 28, 6-6:45pm. Sign up at www.streetwisepartners.org/volunteer.|
