There are three volunteer opportunities:

1.    Educational Doula is a mentor who provides direct services with the student.  That person becomes the third person of a three-member team.

 He or She communicates with a Case Manager and Therapist on the progress of their student regarding goals toward career and college readiness.  The best Doulas will have some knowledge of the college enrollment process, will have basic computer and social media skills.  Tutoring skills in math and or writing are a plus.  This volunteer opportunity requires a minimum of 1 hour per week and 12-month commitment

2.  General admin volunteers commit to working in the office when needed and will be responsible for basic document creation, filing, marketing duties (i.e. passing out brochures at events, etc.)  This person must have basic computer skills.  The time requirement is flexible.

3.  Event volunteer:  This person will help with event planning.   This can be both in the office and from home.   For example: follow up phone calls to specific or potential donors for an event.  Set up an event, registration, etc.  We are currently planning a 30-day summer session. Those chosen for this event will be needed starting end of Feb. through the end of June.

 Applications and background checks are required of all volunteers.   Contact info@jamesinc.org for an application
