Volunteer

Volunteers make a difference by helping BDI job candidates learn how to secure jobs and succeed at work. From conducting mock interviews to mentoring in life skills workshops to participating in social events, volunteers help BDI job candidates develop skills and build confidence. Your support for job candidates will help them change their lives, while strengthening our community. As job candidates land jobs, metro Atlanta gains a stronger, more diverse workforce.

BDI offers flexible opportunities for volunteers to become involved in our mission – all opportunities can be tailored to meet a corporate group’s interests and expertise:

  • Mock Job Interview volunteers use tools provided by BDI to conduct mock interviews, review resumes, and provide feedback to job candidates. Click here for additional details.
  • Skype and Phone Interview volunteers conduct mock job interviews and provide feedback to job candidates. Click here for additional details.
  • Clothing Closet volunteers can organize drives for professional clothing within their company, church, or civic organization or sort items at BDI’s Atlanta office.

  • Workshop Instructors teach job candidates about topics important to their professional development and/or wellbeing. Workshop Instructors may either work with BDI staff to write their own curriculum or use a curriculum previously developed by BDI.
  • Social Opportunities are a key part of our Supported Employment program. Volunteers participate in outings with clients who are already in the workforce, helping them grow their networks.
