Powerhouse NYC is always recruiting mentors that can help our participants achieve concrete career goals. This involves one on one mentorship, life coaching, and/or tutoring. Though there is no formal training required, the ideal candidate is a mom herself, so that there is an innate understanding of the challenges our participants are facing, from the start.
What does this volunteer experience entail? Time dedicated each week to help your mentee determine and accomplish their goals. You’ll help them build a career plan, pursue each application process, obtain financial aid for higher education (if needed), and the pursue employment. You’ll work on writing and communication skills; resume building and time management skills.
And don’t worry, we’ll give you the resources and tools you need to do the job well. You’re already half way there simply by expressing genuine interest in wanting to help!
For our Project Playdate moms, we will gladly give you event credit for your donated time!
