Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia needs a generous volunteer Employment Counselor to assist our participants for two hours, once a month, at one of our five recovery centers (select either Arlington, Annandale, Arlington, Merrifield, or South County Alexandria.
Our participants need help with creating and editing resumes, posting on job sites, and creating alerts that allow the job seeker to have matching jobs sent to their email. Someone who can connect a job seeker to other resources would be a plus, as would be someone who would conduct mock interviews and give interview and attire advice.
In just two hours once a month you could change a life forever. Please consider offering your time and expertise to help uplift those in need.
