Looking for passionate, motivated volunteers who really want to change the world to start a Los Angeles Chapter of SYSTEM Coalition! We are looking for volunteers to fill leadership positions as well as individual contributor positions. I am dedicated to finding the best fit for every volunteer by really getting to know you, your goals, what you want to get out of volunteering and pairing that with an open need that we have.
Time commitment: Flexible
A little about SYSTEM Coalition: we started 5 years ago in Tucson, AZ. 6 exceptionally talented and motivated people who wanted to give back to the community by helping k-12 students find a passion for STEM. We saw all of the poverty in our city and realized if just one of those kids from that community was able to get a great paying job in STEM, they could not only help themselves but also help their whole family break the cycle of poverty! Now the organization has over 100 volunteers, chapters in 4 different cities and growing! More than anything, being a part of this amazing organization has shown me that you really CAN change the world, one step at a time! Come join me in bringing this incredible organization to LA!
