Volunteer Corps Opportunities
Now that you are a member of Volunteer Corps, now what?
CORE Skills Training
Volunteers ages 8 - 18 that have attended orientation will be invited to complete CORE Skills Training on Communication, Consensus Building, Conflict Resolution & Compassion. CORE Skills Training is designed to empower effective communication, teamwork and coping skills to meet adversity in every area of the participant's life. The trainings are typically on Saturdays from 8:30am - 4pm. Lunch and snacks are provided and the cost of the training is covered by the Volunteer Corps. In return, we ask that each volunteer complete a service learning project or volunteer 10 hours a year.
Volunteer Corps School Ambassador Opportunities
The Volunteer Corps Foundation School Ambassador Program is designed to provide youth ages 8 to 18 leadership opportunities in volunteerism, community organizing and leadership development. Being a School Ambassador is a great opportunity for any student who is looking to experience personal growth, and broaden their skills and knowledge for employment and/or higher education. In order to be an Ambassador, students have to be appointed to the program by their school’s faculty or administration. Good ambassador candidates are reliable, self-motivated and have a desire to make a difference in their community.
