Come help with Resume Writing and Offer Interview Tips!

Do you enjoy sharing your path to your career? Are you comfortable sharing your resume tips and tricks? United Way Bay Area is partnering with the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) as well as other groups to host a Resume Writing and Interview Tips session. Figuring out a career path is hard for most people (especially youth of color) and systemic barriers make it even more difficult to expand their network to gain careers and important advice. Our Youth Programs team created this opportunity to engage young adults in a thoughtful experience with various professionals in all industries. This activity will enable youth to see various resume styles, improve their resume, learn format best practices, and ask questions in Zoom break-out rooms. Dates: Thursday, September 17 from 11:30 - 1pm; Thursday, September 24 from 11:30 - 1pm and 4- 5:30pm Qualifications: Non-traditional educational backgrounds and career roadmaps preferred. All career levels, ages, backgrounds, industries and demographics welcomed. Resources: Volunteers should have a job or business, computer access and reliable internet. If you have entry-level job opportunities please send them to volunteer@uwba.org to be shared with our participants 18+. Once you express interest below, we will send you an email with the next steps and Zoom/or Hopin info. Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to reach out with questions. ----------- United Way Bay Area is a nonprofit organization in the Bay Area poverty.

Mask Makers (Virtual Opportunity)

UWBA is looking for generous volunteers to help with the shortage of masks in the Bay Area. If you have access to fabric and a sewing machine, your donation of cloth face masks can be very helpful as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) weighs its recommendation on use. Masks will be given to the homeless, families, and on-site volunteers to minimize the spread of COVID-19. (These will NOT be used by medical professionals and are not considered medical grade.) Please express interest to let us know that you will be sending masks and to get the next steps. We will set-up various drop off for you to deliver them. If you are unable to sew, but want to donate new 100% material please let us know. Thank you in advance for helping United Way to fight Covid-19.
