YouthBuild is looking for volunteers to participate in Transformation Interviews, YouthBuild Philadelphia’s capstone project. In the panel interview, students are asked to reflect on their time at YouthBuild, discuss their transformation as a student and young adult, and demonstrate readiness to go on to post-secondary education or careers.
Panels are comprised of teachers, other YouthBuild staff and volunteers. The Panel members will ask probing questions encouraging students to reflect on their experiences and clearly articulate their ideas, as well as prepare students for job and college interviews. Volunteers play a critical role as the relatively unfamiliar face and voice for the students — providing student’s with feedback from outside the YouthBuild world and pushing students to explain their transformation to a new audience.
Volunteers (over 18) need minimal interview/presentation experience, and a brief training will be provided prior to your first panel. This is also a great opportunity for members of organizations or corporations to volunteer as a group!
Volunteers are needed for each session, morning (8:30-11:30 am) and afternoon (12:30-3:30), June 8, 9, 10.
