There are several volunteer opportunities with The Ladder Alliance.  Please take a look at the list below. If you have any questions or want to volunteer, please complete a volunteer application and email it to info@ladderalliance.org.

Basic Computer Skills Training

Volunteer instructors are critical to the success of the Basic Computer Skills Training program. All evening classes are taught by volunteers who teach once or twice a week. The instruction of classes meeting twice a week is often shared by two volunteers.

Professional Development Training

Volunteers for the professional development training program facilitate a seminar once a week for two hours. Volunteers present topics related to working in an office such as conflict resolution and dressing for success. Volunteers in this capacity are chosen based on their area of expertise in business. They can present multiple topics multiple times if interested.

Mock Interviews

Students participate in job search lessons and activities. Professional volunteers are needed to help students prepare for and practice mock interviews. This volunteer opportunity is coordinated in a variety of ways and at an assortment of days/times during the POST 16 week program.

Success Store

Volunteers are needed to help participants shop in the Success Store, sort donated clothing or accessories and restock the store. Other tasks include cleaning and maintaining the store and dressing room.

Volunteers may also host a clothing drive to stock the store. Items accepted include blouses/sweaters, pants, skirts, dresses, suits, jackets, coats, shoes, purses and jewelry. Clothing donations should be suitable for job interviews and professional office work. Learn More.


Administrative Assistants

Each participant in the Basic Computer Skills Training or Professional Office Skills Training program receives lesson material, homework, and additional skill building exercises in a binder at the beginning of the program. Volunteers are needed to assemble binders before the beginning of a new session.

Sponsor and Host Graduation

Ladder Alliance staff and volunteers host graduations throughout each year to celebrate our Basic Computer Skills and Professional Office Skills Training graduates’ hard work and accomplishments.  To sponsor a graduation, volunteers provide reception decorations and food/refreshments; hand out programs to guests; and help setup, cleanup, and serve refreshments during the reception.

 


Donate Computers and Equipment

The Ladder Alliance will gladly accept your older computer equipment donations to enhance teaching facilities and to replace current systems as they fail. Donations are also used for the Top of The Ladder awards. Learn More.
