About

Jersey Cares is looking for Success Coaches to take part in its ServiceWorks program.

ServiceWorks is a groundbreaking national program that utilizes volunteerism, Skills Training and Success Coaching to increase the chances of opportunity youth 16-24 getting into college and finding employment. You may find out more about it here: http://www.jerseycares.org/serviceworks.

Success Coaches are mentors and accountability partners. They help set SMART goals and teach resume writing, LinkedIn and other skills to their Service Scholars.

The Coaches meet with their Scholars at a location of their choice in Newark but most often the lion's share of the meetings are done remotely via Skype, conference call, group chat etc. A Success Coach may get into Newark for 2 or 3 of 10 meetings but reaching the Scholars is often a remote activity due to their schedules.

If you are looking for the opportunity to spend about three hours a week (with 2 to 3 Scholars) to make a difference in the lives of a few young adults, then this is a great opportunity for you. Volunteering also gives both the Scholars and Coaches increased employability prospects as those who volunteer without a job are 27% more likely to find a job than those who don't volunteer. Please consider helping us in this worthy cause.
