Job Shadowing Host
Middle Earth is a non-profit organization serving youth in Somerset and Hunterdon County. As a part of our Visions and Promise Employment Readiness Programs, we help students learn job skills and connect with job shadowing opportunities that allow them to gain valuable workplace experience. We are currently looking for individuals willing to host students at their places of employment as "interns" for as little as 20 hours, with longer terms available as well. All types of employment are welcome, as long as the placement gives the student the chance to gain workplace experience!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
