Pre-Job Skills Mentor Needed
Help a local lady learn about the modern workplace or volunteer location. Share your talents and skills with someone new!

A local musician who is getting ready to launch a one-drop track of inspirational, Caribbean vibe style music is in need of a reader to assist with on-screen dialogue boxes that pop up. If you know that a Korg is not a fancy puppy, this is a good opportunity for you to spend time with a local musician who arranges and edits his own music. He thinks about an hour or 2 per week is all he needs for assistance.

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance;
  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
