Employment support group volunteer
4 people are interested
MHCCI is a local nonprofit organization that helps adults managing mental health. Our Supported Employment program helps our members obtain employment. We are seeking volunteers at each of our 4 locations to host a weekly employment support group. This role would be great for someone who is a former workforce development professional, or former Human Resources professional. This role consists of leading weekly group meetings with members. The meetings are one hour long and would include a handful of members who are seeking employment. This group would talk about both hard and soft skills that are needed in employment.

MHCC provides a safe environment, promoting wellness, for individuals managing mental health.
MHCC provides opportunities to enhance emotional health through situation-solution discussions and support groups, goal setting and performance sessions, a friendly caring atmosphere, and social activities to assist in problem-solving. We also offer vocational and educational training opportunities such as computer training, cooking, nutrition, creative arts, self-esteem building activities, independent living skills, etc. Social and recreational activities offered include beach/picnic outings, theater, library, physical fitness, sporting events, bowling, visits to local attractions.
At MHCC, peers support one another in reciprocal relationships. Peers have "been there, done that" and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation. Research has shown that peer-run self-help groups yield improvement in psychiatric symptoms resulting in decreased hospitalization, larger social support networks and enhanced esteem and social functioning.
We'll work with your schedule.
