If you have computer know-how, the Washington Service Corps wants you to apply by Aug. 5 to share your skills with Washington’s unemployed.
The state’s unemployment rate might be going down, but nearly 205,000 people are still out of work. And almost 43,000 have been searching with no success for more than six months.
Many lack necessary computer skills that help open doors to better jobs. As a “technology and resource navigator” at a state WorkSource office, you can help these job seekers. Navigators conduct workshops in basic and intermediate computer skills and work one-on-one, helping customers apply for jobs using today’s technology.
WorkSource is a partnership of government agencies, community colleges and non-profit organizations that offers employment and training services to job seekers and businesses.
Serving as a Washington Service Corps AmeriCorps member, you can make a difference and help people create a better future for themselves and their families.
Positions start in September at offices in:
- Mount Vernon
- Walla Walla
Washington Service Corps members commit to 10-and-a-half-months of community service. In return, you receive a modest living allowance, health insurance, training and an educational scholarship. Eligible members with children also can get help with childcare.
The Washington Service Corps is part of the federal AmeriCorps program and administered by the Employment Security Department.Print This Post
