http://juma.org

Juma strives to break the cycle of poverty by paving the way to work, education and financial capability for youth across America. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization, helping students realize their goal of receiving a college diploma. There are numerous ways to actively engage in Juma’s mission: Academic Coach (Year-round) Academic Coaches help students improve their study skills, problem solve, and gain mastery of academic subjects including basic math and English. Tutors can volunteer weekly or bi-weekly, usually on weekday evenings. Saver’s Coach Juma will match volunteers with a high school senior participating in our CollegeSet program. As a Saver’s Coach, volunteers will place a weekly call to support their student in keeping with their savings goals, offer support to troubleshoot challenges with saving and help the student come up with ways to create savings opportunities. Resource Speakers (Year-round) Speakers are sought to share knowledge with students on various topics, including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, career/education paths, or unique life experiences such as traveling abroad or engaging with diverse cultures. Speakers can sign-up individually or as a panel. Marketing, Fundraising, and Special Skills Support (Year-round) Volunteers are needed to assist Juma with various projects including event organization, HR, computer infrastructure, publicity, photography, preparing mailings, and securing in-kind donations. More Opportunities for Individuals Career Coaches (Year-round) Career Coaches assist Juma students with résumé and cover letter writing, interview preparation and other career-related guidance. College Application Coaches (October-November) Application Coaches help students with college research, applications, writing of personal statements, scholarships and financial aid.
