Due to Covid-19 related precautions, all volunteer events are remote and subject to change based on health and safety guidelines.
Year-Long Career Mentors
Beginning in April 2022
Volunteer mentors are matched with recent Grace Institute graduates to help them gain employment and move up the career ladder. Mentors provide their mentees the opportunity to discuss professional topics and ask questions in a safe space. They also introduce their mentees to their professional networks to help facilitate their career goals.
Mentorships last a full year, and mentors meet with their mentees regularly throughout that time. Applications for the next cycle will be available in April, mentors will be selected in May, and the program will begin in June.
Virtual Converse with Confidence
To help our participants prepare for job interviews, we host virtual mock interview events for each cohort. These virtual mock interviews allow our current job seekers to prepare for the next step of their career journey. We are looking for professionals, especially hiring managers, to serve as virtual interviewers.
Zoom links, interview questions, sample job descriptions, participant resumes, and feedback forms will be emailed to volunteers 3-4 days before the event. Each volunteer will interview 4 participants in 20-minute sessions.
Due to limited volunteer opportunities during COVID, our priority is to offer these opportunities to our donors and corporate partners. If there are volunteer spaces open, we will make them available to our email list. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Isaac Skelton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
