New service group seeks members
|Preparing for a new job takes more
than a professional resume, compelling
cover letter and persuasive interview techniques. Many COVA participants also need items that are much more basic, such as suitable work clothing or a haircut, before beginning a new job. Or, after starting, they may need
assistance with transportation or childcare in the period before getting their first paycheck.
In 2009 and 2010, the new Rehabilitation Services Volunteer Program (RSVP) will help COVA participants by raising funds that will address those needs. As a result, these individuals will be better able to overcome the final barriers to successful employment while increasing their self-sufficiency.
The program, starting this summer, is founded on COVA’s belief that volunteers are a valuable asset to any non-profit organization.
Volunteers are being recruited through the Board’s Resource & Development Committee.
RSVP will help COVA participants, share its mission and accomplishments with the community and bring new ideas and energy to the organization.
If you have time to volunteer and have experience raising funds, contact Robin Hepler at email@example.com.
