Change a Young Person’s Life: Volunteer with New Door Ventures
“Virtual” Resume Workshop
Resume workshop volunteers help youth create or improve a resume for their job search. Templates are available and New Door Ventures staff serve as resources during the workshop; our key contribution is talking with the youth and eliciting their past experiences that they may not even realize would strengthen their resume.
Each session begins with a brief orientation about New Door Ventures and instructions for the workshop of the day, and some background about the characteristics of that particular cohort (average age, general school/work background, etc. and any special issues.) We join the youth for their workshop opening, mutual introductions, and a short ice-breaker quiz/game. Then we break into smaller groups or pairs, supported by 2-3 staff who keep things moving, answer questions, make suggestions and keep us on task. There is a final wrap-up of 5-10 minutes with the full group where we and the youth recap the “take-aways.”
Volunteers should be 24 years or above and have access to Zoom audio and video capability.
