Mosaic’s Economic Empowerment Program serves human trafficking and domestic violence survivors. Volunteers are needed in our EE program to help clients adjust to life in the United States.
Economic Empowerment Classes
Lead either a single session virtual class, or 4 week virtual classes on the following topics: Financial Literacy, Job Readiness, Leadership, Healthy eating/exercise, Job Readiness (Resume Building, Interview Skills, Effective Communication, Time Management), Financial Literacy (Budgeting, Credit & Debit, Loans, Investing, Home Buying, Car Buying ), Public Speaking. For the 4 week classes, classes meet once a week.
Job Readiness Mentorship
You can be a huge help to clients by working one-to-one with clients in our Economic Empowerment Program and help them create their resumes and cover letters, interview prep and help with their job search.
As part of our Economic Empowerment Program, we are looking to provide career introduction classes to Mosaic’s clients. These classes can be both virtual or in person.
Volunteers will give introductions, and give a basic overview for clients to learn some different career fields, preferably careers that don’t require a 4-year degree.
This is an important opportunity because many Mosaic clients are not from this country and have limited knowledge about the different kinds of job opportunities. It might seem like common knowledge to us, but clients might not know that a pharmacy technician is a person who gives people medication, they usually work at grocery stores, they are trained to know what medication someone should take if they have a cold, there are classes available online for someone to receive their pharmacy technician certification, etc.
We would also like these classes to be focused on certifications and trade school, if possible. Many clients don’t have the resources to attain a 4-year degree at this point and trade school is a wonderful option for them.
