Civicorps is all about community. We know that our community is filled with people and businesses that can help our Corpsmembers move forward in their lives and careers, and we work hard to create opportunities for both individuals and businesses to share their knowledge and grow our community.
Help our Corpsmembers get extra support to succeed by volunteering to speak at a Community Meeting where you share your professional journey, participating in mock interview panels, and more.
Help build interview skills! Civicorps invites businesses to be a part of our Mock Interview Panels. Volunteers act as employers conducting interviews with our students who are about to graduate and head into the working world. This is a great opportunity to help Oakland youth practice the skills they need to ace an interview!
Typically we hold two Mock Interview Panel sessions per year – one in the spring and one in the winter.
We can also customize a volunteer opportunity for businesses, such as opportunities to send volunteers for special projects to work shoulder-to-shoulder with our corpsmember crews on shoreline clean ups or other projects, or on commemorative days like Earth Day, and MLK Day of Service.
