Support High School District 214 students and their families in need

District 214 Education Foundation has launched the 214Cares Emergency Fund. Community members are invited and encouraged to donate to this emergency fund online at 214foundation.org. All gifts will go directly to District 214 students and families based on the guidance and recommendations of school staff. These dollars may support housing needs, utility needs, basic living needs, academic needs and more. Donors' gifts will go even further because the District 214 Foundation board committed a $10,000 dollar-for-dollar match on the first $10,000 raised. During the 214Cares' campaign's first week, donors contributed $40,000+. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Illinois, about 30 percent of District 214 students were living in poverty. District administrators and the Education Foundation are now aware of heightened needs created by lost jobs, a loss of normalcy and difficulty in meeting basic needs. This is where the community can help in a direct manner. All gifts are tax-deductible, and donors will receive receipts.

PADS Volunteer

JOURNEYS | The Road Home is in urgent need of volunteers. Since we are a social service agency for the homeless, we are required to stay open, however, we have shelters that are closing due to the virus and lack of volunteers. We are looking for all volunteers, new and current that are under 60 years old. We have put that rule in place since the CDC recommended that the 60 and older population takes social distancing more seriously, since they are more susceptible. JOURNEYS | The Road Home provides overnight shelter to homeless individuals and families in the North and Northwest Cook County area through the PADS program. There are 18 PADS site locations that operate Monday - Sunday from 7:00pm - 7:00am. The shifts and opportunities available are listed below: Setup (6:00pm - 7:00pm) 1st Shift (6:30pm - 11:00pm)- Meal Serving, Checking in clients/guests, etc. 2nd Shift (11:00pm - 3:00am) - Admit late approvals, prepare lunches, monitor the site and sleeping guests, etc. 3rd shift (3:00am - 7:00am) - Monitor the site and sleeping guests, make coffee, wake up clients/guests, etc. Clean Up (6:00am - 7:00am) We have canceled all in-person orientations and have created an electronic orientation, so when you express interest, you will be forwarded the presentation.

Career and Job Search Instructors

Volunteer instructors present one or more of a dozen hands-on group seminars that cover every aspect of job search: setting SMART goals; advanced job search techniques, job search plan development, researching and targeting prospects, branding, resume writing, connecting, interviewing, LinkedIn/social media, and more. Our greatest need is for presenters who can present specific content, and lead a group in discussion. Since the presenters will be talking about the importance of LinkedIn in the job search, it is strongly recommend the presenter have a LinkedIn profile as well. In addition, a professional demeanor and appearance is required. (Volunteer presenters need to present themselves as though job ready and it is recommended they dress professionally, as though they were ready to interview or begin work.) Equally important is follow through on the presentation date they commit to. We look to our volunteer presenters to bring the passion. We provide the training framework, audience and promotion of the seminar. A key strength of our program is that our volunteer presenters bring their experiences from a variety of industries and career backgrounds, including, but not limited to, technology, engineering, human resources, risk management, training, technology as well as sales and marketing. This is a Skill Based Volunteer (SBV) Opportunity.

Power Employment Workshop Presenter

Volunteer presenters are needed to assist Business and Career Services (BCS) and with their award-winning “Power Employment” workshop designed to give job seekers “the Edge” when seeking employment.  Volunteers will present one or more of the following workshop modules:  Smart Goal setting, Advanced Job Search Techniques, Resume Writing and Interviewing.  All workshops are PowerPoint presentations, often presented in conjunction with another volunteer presenter.   Volunteers receive an initial orientation to the goals of the program and are then directed to observe and audit two Power Employment area workshops before presenting.  Additionally, volunteers are required to attend a monthly evening training meeting at the Schaumburg Library.  Here, job search best practices are discussed, and approved classroom flyers and training materials are passed out.  At this meeting, volunteers also benefit from hearing and networking with guest speakers, often local employers with jobs. Power Employment workshops are presented Monday - Friday from 9:30am - 3:30pm at local Northwest Cook County libraries and BSC offices in Arlington Heights, Hanover Park and Robbins. Volunteers will schedule their availability after completion of their audit of Power Employment workshops.  This is a great opportunity to develop superior presentation skills, build confidence by assuming a leadership role, as well as eliminate gaps in the resume.  Volunteers also land about 50% faster, since they are always teaching others how to find a job. To qualify for this volunteer opportunity, you do not have to be a trainer, speaker or sales professional. But it is recommended that minimally you have successfully conducted and lead a group in discussion.  Ideally, volunteers have also given a presentation to a work unit or other group, can communicate effectively with audiences, as well as present a professional image to represent BCS in this helping and teaching role.     There are also additional volunteering opportunities, such as helping at area Job Fairs and some administrative projects.  But our biggest ongoing need is for volunteer presenters to present “Power Employment.” This is a Skill Based Volunteer (SBV) opportunity.
