Volunteers mean so much to For A Real Change, Inc. Volunteers may serve within programs or support the programs in other ways. We seek program volunteers, contributing writers, and creative volunteers. In addition, we seek mentor volunteers for roles as teachers, speakers, and assistants. Learn more about these volunteer roles below. Specific volunteer opportunities will be posted on this page when they become available. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact [email protected].
Program Volunteers have various duties within the program and at events.
Contributing Writers are welcome to add content to our blogs or publications focused on education and storytelling.
Creative Volunteers are welcome to assist the program with photography, videography, and graphic design.
Within For a Real Change, we believe that teachers, speakers, and assistants serve as mentors – advising and guiding the youth. The For a Real Change mentors empower youth by supporting them in identifying the power within themselves.
Teachers – Teachers lead groups in lessons over the course of multiple weeks. They use their knowledge missed with the key topics to guide discussion and guide the youth in applied learning activities. For a Real Change seeks volunteers who have experience working with youth groups, youth programming, or teaching.
Speakers – For a Real Change invites individuals to share their knowledge through one-time speaking engagements within our programs. Speakers generally share their story or prepare a topic in line with the lesson for the week. We welcome speakers from different backgrounds and career fields. We strive to provide opportunities for youth to learn about different careers and see themselves in positions they may have never imagined or knew existed before.
Assistants – In many of the For a Real Change programs, groups of 10 or more come with the support of assistants. Volunteers in these roles help ensure that youth are given necessary attention and teachers have assistance throughout the program.
Digital Marketing – The digital marketing internship position with For a Real Change, Inc. provides an opportunity to gain experience in digital marketing while also working to promote youth development programming.
