Get Involved


We are continuing to connect participants and graduates to resources and supportive services. Just as our workshop has gone virtual, so have our volunteer opportunities! 

Current opportunities include: mock interviewing, social media ambassadors, tech buddies, step up cheerleaders, outreach ambassadors, resume developers, YRC Case Manager Assistant, and civic engagement & advocacy volunteers! We can also host corporate and other groups for done in a day projects.
