Employment Mentors Needed!
The employment mentor will be an employment guide and friend for a refugee during their adjustment into the American workforce. Mentors help create a safe space for the individual to practice and build their English skills and their job skills. Some activities that employment mentors could do include: helping fill out job applications around town, practicing for and supporting the refugees during follow-ups both in person and on the phone, and practicing mock job interviews. Employment mentors meet with the refugees 2-4 hours a week at the discretion of the volunteer and availability of the refugee. Employment mentors are expected to work with the client for 2 months, or until the client finds employment.
