Volunteer as a Tutor with SOUL Programs

SOUL is a unique sports based educational program that works in DC public schools, using sports as a pedagogical tool for academic, professional, and personal development. SOUL is looking for dedicated individuals like you who are committed to working with at risk youth to help foster socially empowered young leaders. SOUL seeks tutors to work with middle and high school students on Mondays and Thursdays from 3-5pm. Tutors will work with students on academics as well as college and professional readiness. SOUL also works to expose our students to as many career opportunities and experiences as possible, so if you have an idea for an excursion or career exploration experience that you would like to facilitate we would love to hear from you!

Training for Workers’ Rights Clinic, Employment Justice Center

Please join the IRC on Saturday, August 29 for a training with the Employment Justice Center (EJC) to prepare volunteers for their Workers’ Rights Clinics held on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The EJC seeks Spanish and Amharic speakers to volunteer at their Workers’ Rights Clinics.
This training will prepare volunteers for any of EJC’s 3 Workers’ Rights Clinics: every Wednesday from 6-9pm at Bread For the City’s NW office, and every other Friday (12-4pm) and Saturday (10am-1pm).
Volunteers will conduct legal intake with low-income workers to assess their eligibility to make workers’ compensation and other employment claims. Volunteers should be able to commit to 1 clinic per month during the Fall semester.
This is a great opportunity to get hands-on legal experience working with clients, give back to the low-income immigrant community, and gain hours toward your Pro Bono Pledge.
