Service Opportunity Details: Youth Guidance’s @Work events offer career exploration through a curriculum that aligns with its BAM (Becoming A Man) and WOW (Working on Womanhood) core values for students enrolled in those programs. Youth Guidance has a series of large-scale events where volunteers are critical participants. Volunteers serve as mentors to our students, share their career journeys, and help students build their job-readiness skills. These events are planned annually to fit into @Work program milestones. Youth Guidance provides workshops and curriculum to support volunteers in having critical conversations with our youth.
