Looking for a meaningful way to give back in Los Angeles? Volunteer as a Career Coach with America Needs You (ANY) and help an ambitious, first-generation college student reach their full potential!
Mission: America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development.
Impact: America Needs You (ANY) pairs high-achieving, low-income, first-generation college students with young professionals from a variety of industries who serve as their mentors throughout the duration of the two year Fellowship program. Mentor Coaches meet with students in person and remotely to help students achieve their career goals and graduate from college with a full-time job or graduate school placement.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: We are looking for experienced professionals to volunteer with us as Career Coaches, one-time volunteers that are matched with one of our Scholars for the day whose regular Mentor is absent.
Career Coaches serve as that student's Mentor for the day, working with them on workshop activities and supporting their professional growth. We work in a cohort model so Career Coaches may also work with other Mentors and other Scholars during group activities.
Requirements: To be eligible to volunteer as a Career Coach you should:
- Want to mentor first-generation college students in their personal and professional development.
- Be available to attend the full career development workshop (10am - 4pm)
- Be a college graduate with 3+ years of work experience, willing to share your industry expertise and network.

We hope to see you there!
