ORGANIZATION: America Needs You

Image_202209131223

Only 11% of low-income, first-generation college students are expected to earn bachelor’s degrees. You can help America Needs You (ANY) change this.

ANY fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first generation college students. We do this by providing a two-year, intensive mentoring and professional training program where first-generation students ("Fellows") are paired with young professional volunteers.

We are looking for 10 Career Coaches for our October 1st workshop. The topics will include Teamwork, Project Management, and Public Speaking as Leadership.

As a career coach, you'll volunteer at an ANY workshop, working with 1-2 students ("Fellows") to engage in our career development topic of the day. You will provide valuable insight and expertise from your own personal and professional experiences. Orientation will be provided at the beginning of the day.
