Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
does your corporate team seek an opportunity to:
Develop leadership skills through skills-based volunteering;
Bond as a team around a common experiential service or learning objective;
Experience a population diverse in cultural and life experiences; and,
Share knowledge and skills to help provide valuable life skills support through rewarding volunteer service.
If so, we invite you to partner with us. Your corporate team can participate in a variety of ways.
Host a workshop for survivors to develop knowledge and skills to help them advance toward employment educational and life goals. Does someone on your team possess facilitation skills and experience in any of the following areas?
Resume/cover letter writing
team impact days
Experience relationship building with a diverse community of asylum-seekers. Could your team lead a Volunteer Impact Day such as one of the following?
Sponsor a cultural luncheon for survivors to learn about a particular tradition or holiday (American or otherwise);
Lead an event to engage survivors in creative activities aimed at building connection and community;
Spring clean our local garden with survivors at TASSC; or
Host a half day “round robin” resume review or mock interview session for survivors to meet with skilled members of your team.
One-on-One Support and Mentoring
Your team members can volunteer on a regular basis at the TASSC office in Northeast DC to meet with survivors individually and work on resumes, LinkedIn profiles, cover letters or job applications. Scheduling is flexible, but needs to be at the same time each week or every other week, for at least 3 months (fall, winter, spring or summer). Click here for more information.
We also seek volunteers on a rolling basis for our Professional Mentor Program, for which we pair survivors with professionals in their industry for a 3-month (or longer, if desired) mentorship to work toward their networking and professional development goals. Click here for more information.
