Want to help end homelessness for women and families in Milwaukee?
Our Women’s Independence Program provides work readiness and a direct connection to employment that can lead to long term stability. Workshop Instructors empower residents facing homelessness to achieve their fullest potential by facilitating workshops centered on employment and independence.
Individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer to facilitate workshops. Workshop instructors lead various workshops regarding employment and offer expertise to help job seeking clients gain the confidence to become employed.
This opportunity is perfect for those with expertise in professional skill development, love working with people, and interested in supporting social services. Bring your energy and enthusiasm! Volunteers must be comfortable speaking and facilitating groups, as well as, working with homeless adults with mental illness and addictions.
This commitment is customizable. Volunteers are able to select from 4 workshop options and may volunteer regularly or "on call."
To learn more, contact Ana Treptow, Volunteer Coordinator at 414-831-0394 Ext 2133 or firstname.lastname@example.org. After completing an application and passing a background check, training will be provided, as well as, a shadowing session to observe existing workshops.
