Join the Circles Jobs & Education Team!
Use your knowledge of employment and educational resources to support Circles participants specifically when it comes to their employment and educational goals. Team members typically meet with Circle Leaders one-on-one on a monthly or bi-monthly basis to help them find higher-paying jobs or educational pathways that lead to higher-paying jobs. The Jobs & Education Team is often led by someone who has experience with workforce development or works for a community college. Volunteers on this team usually serve as either job liaisons or education liaisons. It is also helpful to have a member with entrepreneurial experience.
