Level Up Career Team Members Wanted
Level Up is a program that helps struggling, working families gain access to job training, financial education, assistance with child care, and access to barrier buster funding to help them overcome the obstacles that are preventing them from moving into better paying jobs and becoming more financially secure.
The Level Up Career Team is comprised of volunteers from a variety of professions who agree to share their knowledge and skills with our Level Up clients as they move towards achieving their career goals. Team members will be called on from time to time to have one-on-one conversations with clients, be guest speakers at Level Up Monthly Meetings, assist with career search skills, etc.
The goal of the Level Up Career Team is to put together a team of volunteers from a wide background of professions so that we can match our Level Up clients with a volunteer that has expertise in a field relevant to them. For example, HR professionals would be called on to help with things like resume writing and mock interviews since they have real world experience in those areas. A manufacturing professional would not be asked to assist with resume writing unless they specifically state that they have experience and would be willing to assist in that area. Someone in the medical field would not be asked to speak with a client interested in manufacturing careers as that wouldn’t be their specialty.
If selected to be a Level Up Career Team member you will be asked to fill out an Area of Expertise questionnaire that Lake Area United Way will use to determine which team member is the best person to reach out to for each individual client need.

Select the Express Interest option and a Lake Area United Way staff member will reach out to you to finish the application process. If you have questions about the opportunity please reach out to Megan at email@example.com.
