Jewish Family and Children's Services needs volunteers to provide refugees with employment and financial skills to help them become self-sufficient. They are looking for people with experience or interest in leading group workshops, a willingness to learn how to teach with an interpreting, and comfort working with non-or limited English speakers. Responsibilities can include but are not limited to; facilitating hour-long workshops using a prepared curriculum, adapting learning materials, discussing education materials with a supervisor, and responding to questions. Topics vary but may include banking, check writing, mock interviews, job readiness, time management, money management, and cultural orientation.
The time commitment is flexible, requiring only 1 or 2 hours a month. Required training and orientation is provided. Act 33 & 34 clearances are required but are free for volunteers.
