Volunteer – City Year’s Volunteer Editors

Looking for volunteer editors to support our AmeriCorps Members as they enhance their career development skills!

Want to give back to AmeriCorps members but are only able to volunteer a few hours at a time? Interested in assisting our corps member with career readiness?

Become a Volunteer Editor! This behind-the-scenes opportunity would include reviewing resumes, cover letters, graduate school applications, and CV’s. We are looking for a group of volunteers that could be called upon to provide feedback asynchronously during the Spring Seasons, the months of February through April. Assist our AmeriCorps Members in enhancing their career development skills.

Volunteer Editor Opportunity

Who can volunteer? Adults 25+, preferred career professionals and City Year Alums!
Start-End Dates: February- April
Time Commitment: 30 minutes- 1 hour per resume/files

About the Program: On the first Wednesday of the first full week of the month (Feb 2, Mar 2 & Apr 6), Volunteer Editors will receive files electronically containing the files from one AmeriCorps member who has requested feedback. Depending on the needs, the files can include any of the following: resumes, cover letters, CV’s. Volunteers will then have 18 days to return the files with comments and edits.
