Help Promote Career Readiness in Baltimore
Living Classrooms Foundation
Workforce Development is one of the key ways Living Classrooms helps connect people with opportunity. Volunteers enrich our Workforce programs by offering hands-on help with tasks like resume writing, mock interviews, job applications, career discussions, and more. By reducing the size of these barriers and introducing new career paths and diverse points of view, Career Readiness Volunteers have a major impact on our workforce development participants.
We welcome Career Readiness Volunteers from all backgrounds and experience levels. Career Readiness Volunteers serve on an as-needed basis and opportunities may fluctuate with programming needs - flexibility is important. All service opportunities are currently virtual with volunteers connecting to participants in online/remote settings.
A few Living Classrooms Workforce programs may utilize Career Readiness Volunteers, read over their descriptions below before completing our volunteer application and inquiring about opportunities.
- Project SERVE - This program serves re-entering citizens by providing a rapid connection to employment, skills building, and case management following release from incarceration. For many participants, it is an important step on the journey to stable employment and future career growth.
- Bloomberg Year-Round Program - In partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, Living Classrooms operates a year-round youth workforce program that engages local students in paid internship positions, accompanied by job readiness training, guidance, case management, and college coaching.
