Online Volunteering

Coaching Days are an opportunity for our Builders to receive feedback on resumes, personal statements, and interview skills. However, because of precautions in place due to COVID-19, RISE has created a self-paced, at-home Modified Coaching Event for volunteers to keep providing such important help to our program participants!

For this Modified Coaching Event, volunteers will be assigned a RISE Builder via private RISE Coaching Portal, where they will review a personal statement, cover letter, resume, and beginning phase of business ideation. While reviewing these crucial pieces of RISE's program (and the reentry process), volunteers will submit honest feedback via a guided online Google Form.

Important things you should know:
- This is roughly a 2-3 hour time commitment, however, it is all self-paced and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
- You will need computer access to complete this volunteer opportunity. Unfortunately, this opportunity is not optimal from your mobile device.
- There is a hard completion date deadline of August 21st, 2021.
- There are no prerequisites to volunteer for the Modified Coaching Event! If you have ever spent time in the workforce, you're qualified!
