RISE Giving Tuesday with SHARE Omaha on November 29th, 2022

Break the cycle this Giving Tuesday.

What if you were only known for the worst thing you've ever done? We prepare and train people for each phase through intensive character development, employment readiness, job creation through entrepreneurship and case management. We transform people in the community by building awareness and empathy that leads to support and opportunity. These connections heal families, create employment pathways and lower recidivism.

RISE online coaching events

We need 140 Online Volunteers!

Online Coaching provides an opportunity for our program participants to receive in depth feedback on resumes, personal statements, and interview skills.

For this Online Coaching Event, volunteers will be assigned a RISE program participant 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 January 16th, 2023.
- There are NO prerequisites to volunteer for the Online Coaching Event! If you have ever spent time in the workforce, you're qualified!
