Career Mentors - Chicagoland

AWOFINC

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 22 people are interested

Career mentors are staff members that provide individualized services to participants. Some service providers refer to these staff as career coaches, case managers, or youth development specialists. The Partnership uses the term "career mentor" to recognize the unique relationship that effective staff members develop with young adults. Providing Opportunity Youth with quality career exploration, training and internship services is much more impactful when coupled with one-on-one support and mentoring. Staff are often required to provide young participants with guidance, motivation and a positive example, as they assist them in pursuing employment and training goals. They serve as mentors, even when not specifically identified as such.

Career mentors should have at least 3 years of related work experience. Please note that some referral sources, such as juvenile justice agencies or schools, may require that staff complete a criminal background check and meet specific qualifications prior to working with youth. The Partnership also encourages service providers to connect youth to volunteer mentors, from the partner businesses and/or community.
