Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) helps people, particularly those with barriers to employment, acquire the skills and resources to progress toward the goal of self-sufficiency. The Technology Access Center (TAC) is a community computer facility and resource library available to anyone looking to improve their job-related computer skills and search for a job.
TAC Volunteer Description: TAC Volunteers will help empower clients by helping them become confident and self-sufficient with using computers to achieve their career goals.
Training: To help prepare you for your work in the TAC, JVS offers volunteers a general orientation to all of JVS’ services and programs, as well as specific training on how volunteers will provide support and assist TAC clients in their job search.
Commitment: All TAC volunteers are asked to commit to cover one shift a week (shifts are everyday from 9am-11am, 11am-1pm, 1pm-3pm, or 3pm-5pm). Volunteers commit to a total of 8 hours per month.
Benefits: Volunteering in the TAC is an easy and rewarding way to give back to your community and gain work experience. Your involvement will help JVS clients gain the skills they need to be competitive in the current job market.
Location: JVS is located at 225 Bush Street, Suite 400 in San Francisco.
