During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
This activity is designed to replicate an actual job interview. Job Readiness Workshop participants dress in job interview appropriate attire. Volunteers are assigned small groups of Job Readiness Workshop participants and interview them in a format that allows all Job Readiness Workshop participants to receive immediate productive feedback and advice. All volunteer interviewers complete a score sheet for each interviewee.
Every other Thursday, 1:05 - 2:35 p.m. (1-3 volunteers).
All volunteers will complete an application and should ideally have enough work experience to be able to share some "words-of-wisdom" with the participants. Volunteers can help on a one time or recurring basis, though we do encourage new volunteers to observe a session at least once to become familiar with the role.

The mission of Cincinnati Works is to partner with all willing and capable persons living in poverty to assist them in escaping poverty through the acquisition and retention of self-supporting jobs. Cincinnati Works is a non-profit organization supplying capable entry-level employees to the corporate community.
Cincinnati Works is a poverty to self-sufficiency initiative started in 1996 by Dave and Liane Phillips. The program has 4 levels: 1) Job Readiness Training: includes structured training and one-on-one sessions until the member is employed. 2) Job search: includes group and individual sessions to assist members in finding a full-time job, paying $6-$9/hour with benefits, in their fields of interest. 3) Job Retention: includes intensive follow-up services to the member after job acquisition to promote the stability of the employment. 4) Advancement: includes services for those who have demonstrated stability in the workforce. Enables members to create a plan to pursue promotional, educational, and skills training opportunities.
We'll work with your schedule.
