Virtual Volunteer Job Tutor

Per Scholas

Flexible times and locations

Corporate and job volunteers play a critical role in Per Scholas training. Even when you can't be present physically, you can give back by volunteering to help aspiring technologists improve their communication skills, learn about key technical content, and better understand the corporate landscape to secure a job and progress in their career. Per Scholas virtual volunteers can help community members with: 1. Mock interviews. Volunteers will have the chance to virtually review a student's resume, interview them for a "mock" position and give them feedback after completing the interview. This gives students the opportunity to practice and refine their interview skills and build confidence in their abilities. 2. Virtual Lunch. Volunteers will virtually "sit" down with a student they are paired with, eat lunch, and discuss their experiences at work as well as give career advice. During the lunch, volunteers can provide insight on their technical skills, social and emotional intelligence at work, and career pathways. Through this interaction, our students are able to learn more about a corporate environment and gain valuable practice networking with a professional. 3. Resume Review. Volunteers will virtually discuss the importance of a resume and cover letter when applying for a job, review and give feedback on the student's resume, and assist with editing a future iteration of the document. Opportunities are available virtually to support Per Scholas community members and job seekers in different cities and communities. Volunteers must have some real-world job experience and training in order to guide and help other job-seekers and career aspirations learn and improve. Hiring manager, human resources (HR), and/or tech experience in particular are recommended.

Go Carbon Neutral

Brightest (Climate)

Flexible times and locations

When we started Brightest we made two simple commitments to ourselves and you: anytime someone completed an act of good or volunteer shift through Brightest, we'd plant a tree. Second, we'd operate as a net zero carbon (CO2) service, offsetting all our servers, travel, and anything else we use to run our website and build our community. Thanks to the commitment of our climate community (and people like you), we've already planted over 10,000 new trees, capturing more than a hundred tons of CO2 this year. All thanks to individual acts of good adding up to big change. Now, with your help, we're taking our tree projects and sustainability commitment to the next level with a new service: a Zero Carbon Living tree-planting offset subscription. Using our existing project and partner infrastructure, each month we plant plant trees and invest in carbon-neutralizing clean energy and waste projects on behalf of our members, then verify the work to report back impact, allowing you to go carbon neutral (or gift zero carbon living to a friend) for less than the price of a weekly coffee ☕ While we don't think this alone will solve the climate crisis (one of the many reasons we provide digital infrastructure and tools to groups like Fridays for Future, XR, and Sunrise Movement), little differences DO add up when we spread the word and work together. To illustrate this, if every Spotify or Netflix customer went carbon-zero, it would carbon offset the environmental footprint of a country the size of Australia or Brazil. If you'd like to help us reach our next planting target of 1 million trees, we'd be extremely grateful, and you can start right here. Your contribution to plant trees and go carbon neutral is tax deductible. Trees planted through Brightest are planted in partnership with The Brightest Foundation Incorporated, a registered US 501(c)(3) public charity, EIN 83-3516335, alongside our local reforestation partner network. Your contribution to plant trees and offset your carbon footprint with us is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S law.

Plant a Tree ($1 a Tree)

Brightest (Climate)

Flexible times

Trees are the most efficient, natural carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbers on the planet. Planting a tree helps limit climate change, restart water cycles, keep deserts from spreading, and also provides vital natural resources to local communities. Every time you plant a tree on Brightest, you're making the world a little better (and more carbon neutral), while offsetting your personal carbon footprint. Each tree you plant offsets approximately 1% of a metric ton (MT) of CO2 each year, sometimes up to 2%. Healthy, protected trees live to be 50, 75, and often 100+ years old, making them one of nature's most important ecosystem protectors and climate change fighters. For easy reference, planting 30 new trees is equal to taking one car off the road for a year and neutralizing all its emissions and carbon footprint. By supporting our tree planting projects, you'll help protect forest biodiversity, restore degraded land, fight climate change, and promote local economic development in front-line communities. Our partners work with local conservation groups, farmers, and tree planters in the United States (including wildfire areas like California and Montana), Brazil, Haiti, Peru, Madagascar, Mozambique, and Tanzania to establish sustainable agroforestry systems using native tree species, create good-paying green jobs, and help protect the local environment. Trees planted through Brightest are planted in partnership with The Brightest Foundation Incorporated, a US 501 (c)(3) public charity, EIN 83-3516335, alongside our local reforestation partner network. Any contribution you make to plant trees with us is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.
