This is an in-person opportunity in D.C. Mentors will support members (those experiencing homelessness) alongside Back on My Feet staff in an office hours type setting. Mentors may support with data entry, 1:1 or small group goal setting, job searching, etc. Mentors play an integral part in the journey that our members take as they are identifying and working towards their employment goals on their path to self-sufficiency. ​As an extended support network, mentors provide connection sharing experience, insight, community, and general employment search/prep support.

*THIS OPPORTUNITY NOTES IS AN IN-PERSON OPPORTUNITY AT A SPECIFIC LOCATION OCCURING EVERY MONDAY.

Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way society approaches homelessness. Our unique model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead. For all in need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope.

For all with the capacity to serve - volunteers, donors, community and corporate partners - we seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.
