Skills-based Volunteering

Career Panels and Workshops
Currently, less than 30% of students graduate from high school ready for college. Volunteers will help high school students get ready for college and career by introducing them to diverse professions and career opportunities as well as offering them tips on applying to college. Volunteers needed: 5–15.

Resume Review and Mock Interviews
Volunteers will help low-income and homeless New Yorkers seeking jobs polish their resumes and interviewing skills. Volunteers needed: 5–15. 

Volunteer Tax Assistance 
The federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program provides substantial financial benefits to America’s low-income families and individuals.  Unfortunately, many New Yorkers who qualify do not apply: they don’t know about the program; they don’t know how to apply; or they are intimidated by the process. Volunteers will train for and provide free tax preparation for low-income New Yorkers to determine their eligibility for EITC. Volunteers needed: Individual opportunity.
