National Volunteer Week Spotlight Day 4!
Volunteering your time and expertise, even in the short-term, can help neighbors find long-term pathways to success.
Yesterday Portland Arts & Technology High School (PATHS) held a workshop featuring a trivia game to help prepare students with job search skills. Volunteers from Goodwill’s Job Connection program led a class on resume writing and assisted one-on-one with resume writing and support. This is part of a PATH’s month-long focus on Career Readiness. Later this month, volunteers will conduct mock interviews and attend a career fair where they will use their new skills and resumes to apply and search for employment.
Financial stability and employment are key strategies of Thrive2027 Goal 2; ensure that individuals and families have the education, employment opportunities, and resources to achieve financial stability.
