This is a good opportunity for anyone interested in social work to learn what it's like dealing with a variety of personalities. You can make an appointment to "shadow" an advocate for an afternoon to observe how we interact with clients and find out if it's something you would like to do on on a weekly basis. We need advocates Monday through Thursday, from 1pm to 4 pm. If you can speak Spanish that would be a HUGE plus!
When someone comes to our food shelf, they have a one-on-one meeting with an advocate. A listening ear and encouragement are the advocates greatest tools. After the client meets with an advocate, then they go to the food shelf. Be prepared to be challenged and changed by some amazing people.
