By supporting the Fulfillment Fund as a volunteer, you become part of a movement of people who are committed to investing in our community and in future generations. We have volunteer opportunities that fit many different schedules and interest areas. Please check back often as new opportunities become available!
Be a Guest Speaker in a High School Classroom
(Career Day @ NOW Academy 3/28/2014) (FF Student Leadership Group 1x month)
Do you remember when you first became passionate about your career? Did you ever learn a life lesson that is still with you today? Then we want you to share your story with our high school students! Our College Access Program curriculum teaches 9th-12th graders the skills they need to be successful in school and in life, with lessons in academic achievement, goal setting, organizational skills and more. By sharing your unique set of skills with our classroom, you could leave a lifelong impression on our students. Please complete a volunteer form.
Cheer On Team Fulfillment Fund at the LA Marathon
Sunday, March 9, 2014
Team Fulfillment Fund is back for our third year as an official charity of the LA Marathon. We are looking for volunteers to help cheer on Team Fulfillment Fund and provide refreshments to our runners. For more information, please visit our Marathon webpage or email Sarah Oesterle.
Review Student Scholarship Essays
Every year we enlist the help of volunteers to read and rate scholarship application essays submitted by Fulfillment Fund high school seniors who will be starting college in the fall. This opportunity requires 5-6 hours of your time to review essays submitted to you via email, and a one-time evening meeting where reviewers convene to discuss and normalize scores. Please complete a volunteer form.
Help College Students with Internships
November & December, 2014
Volunteers are needed to support the scholarship program in reviewing and editing student resumes as part of the Internship Service Training for our internship cohort. Resume review is a critical step in the training process, as our students receive important feedback and support in creating an optimal resume that will enhance their ability to secure an internship. We are also looking for volunteers to participate in the mock interview process with our internship cohort. Volunteers will be asked to join us for one afternoon to interview and provide feedback to students planning to apply for summer internships. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Host a Student Tour through your Office
We are looking for volunteers to host a group of Fulfillment Fund students at your office. Students would have the ability to see where you work and better understand what your employees do and how education will help them succeed in your profession. If you are interested in hosting a student tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Mentor a Student
For more than two decades, the Fulfillment Fund has matched students with caring, committed adult mentors who help support our students on their paths to high school graduation and a successful transition to college. Mentors are thoughtfully paired with their student and receive support and guidance from Fulfillment Fund staff throughout the mentoring relationship. Visit our mentor page or email Xiomara Iraheta for more information.
Help in the Fulfillment Fund Office
Our Fulfillment Fund team is always looking for administrative help to assist in the office. Areas in need of support include filing, mailings, data entry and more. For additional information, please email email@example.com.
Donate Items for Student Programs
With student events and programs running year round, we are searching for in-kind donations of items needed to support these programs. Examples include gifts for student raffles (electronics, restaurant gift cards, sports tickets), food & beverage (water, breakfast items, healthy snacks), and school supplies (pens, paper, books).
