Description

Join Echelon SF at The Salvation Army Kroc Community Center for LinkedIn Leaders: a community workshop led by Echelon SF (and volunteers like you!) to help rehabilitated clients who have been disconnected from the workforce and are ready to reintegrate. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for young and emerging professionals excited about sharing their experience with building a resume, using LinkedIn as an employment tool, and gearing up for interviews.


Using technology provided through the Kroc Community Center, Echelon SF volunteers will help clients review and refine their resumes, create LinkedIn accounts, guide them through best practices for finding a job on the LinkedIn platform, and discuss how to prepare for an interview. Our clients come from many walks of life and have varying degrees of need, which is why we're looking for passionate volunteers like you to help Echelon SF give the support they need to transition toward success.


This event kicks off at 6pm with a quick mix & mingle for the clients and volunteers followed by our 1.5 hour LinkedIn workshop with breakout sessions that pair volunteers with 1 to 2 clients. At 7:30 we'll wrap up the workshop and invite volunteers to join us at Mikkeller Bar (Mason St. at Turk St.) to grab a bite to eat, have a drink, and socialize.


FAQs

What qualifications do I need in order to volunteer as a LinkedIn Leader?

You do not need specific training or experience to volunteer, but it would be benifical to have recent experience in creating a resume, using the LinkedIn platform, and job searching or interviewing. The most important qualification you can have as a LinkedIn Leader volunteer with EchelonSF is the desire to do the most good!


Who are the clients we will be serving at the Kroc Community Center?

The clients for this event are rehabilitated adults graduating from one of the local Salvation Army rehab programs. They are local residents who have been disconnected from working life and need varying degrees of help to jump back in. Some of our clients will need help discovering and documenting their skills, while others will benefit simply from interacting with professionals to reorient themselves to professional life and networking.


Will volunteers receive talking points before the workshop?

Yes. If you register to volunteer, you will receive an invite to a Volunteer Preparation call the week before the workshop (date and time currently TBD). EchelonSF will go over the event schedule, what to expect, provide key talking points for volunteers, and go over any questions or concerns you may have.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email EchelonSanFrancisco@gmail.com with any questions regarding the LinkedIn Leaders event on Augst 20th, 2019.
