Come volunteer as a Virtual Career Coach!

Do you enjoy sharing your path to your career? Are you comfortable sharing your resume tips and tricks? 

We are partnering with the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) to host our first ever Virtual Career Exploration Activity to serve 8-10 young adults from the Oakland-area. 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. Come volunteer as a youth career coach or be part of a panel.  This activity will enable youth to connect  and ask questions with volunteers in Zoom break-out rooms.  

Dates: (1) Tuesday, May 26  we encourage health care professionals to express interest & Monday, June 8 (other industries encouraged to apply). 

Qualifications: Non-traditional background and career roadmaps preferred. All career levels, ages, backgrounds, industries and demographics welcomed. As far as healfhcare professionals, we're looking for doctors, dentist, therapist, nurses, technicians, front-line staff,  and other health care administrators. 

Resources: Volunteers should have a computer and reliable internet. If you have entry-level job opportunities please send them to volunteer@uwba.org to  be shared with our participants. 

Once you express interest below, we will send you an email with the next steps. Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to reach out with questions.
