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.

Volunteer To Listen To People

Listen One

Flexible times

**It is important to read and understand all these expectations before you apply to become a Listener.**Listen.One exists because of three reasons; we believe we are made to love everyone, we believe in the Holy Spirit to guide us and we believe that Jesus can impact anyone’s life anywhere at anytime.The challenge for us is to love our neighbors - all our neighbors! It is difficult to love our neighbors who aren’t easy and convenient to love when our normal routines of life create comfort zones that keep us from meeting others. We believe that to start actively loving our neighbors starts with getting to know who they are.People are seeking to feel known and that takes time. Most of the time it is not just a few chat messages sent back and forth. It’s following up the next day to check in with them to see how they are doing. It’s about building relationships and that takes time to build trust and friendship. Think of this as a pen pal service using email, text messages and phone calls.The time commitment is about 2-5 hours per week. Volunteer Listeners all work from home and set their own schedule.To support our volunteer Listeners, we have weekly group phone calls with all Listeners to learn from other Listeners and ask questions of the group.Our guidelines for our Volunteer ListenersPray that the Holy Spirit guides you and helps you to be mentally present and that your conversations will be peaceful, non-judgmental and encouraging.Always set the time expectation with the Sharer. Make sure they know how much time you have to chat and when you will be able to chat next.Show the Sharer respect - do not multitask while chatting. Be comfortable and have fun but don’t jump into their talk with your opinions or your experiences. Don’t be distracted by your surroundings. Show this person that they are the most important person in your life at this moment. No preaching, no condemning, no judging, no advice.Acknowledge what the Sharer says. Use your imagination to put yourself in their shoes - not with your history but with theirs. Don’t think about how you would do things better or how you are going to offer a solution.Be curious!Ask specific clarifying questions around - Who? What? When? Where? You can also clarify what they said by simply asking "Are you saying that...? Restate what you hear.Get to know more about them: "Were you afraid?" "How did this change things for you?" "How did you deal with that?"If you are excited about joining our listening team, please take the time now to fill out our application form. https://listen.one/listener-signup/ This is the first step.Listen.One is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Please visit our website to learn more about us. https://listen.one
