Volunteer with JOBS NOW PROVIDENCE next week!

The City of Providence is looking for volunteers to get the word out about JOBS NOW to small business owners/neighborhood markets! The assignment is as follows:

The City needs to spend $45 million before Sept. 30 through the JOBS NOW program-

1. Providence is trying to mobilize (diverse, bi-lingual if possible) volunteers across the city in our neighborhood markets (Broad St., Hope St., Downtown, Wickenden, Cranston St., etc.) to get the word out about the JOBS NOW program. (Organizers will provide hand-outs for the businesses, and the volunteers will be trained on Monday to answer simple JOBS NOW questions)

2. Volunteers will be helpful in gathering contact information of businesses that have received this information for the neighborhood market database.

3. Each day volunteers will be out in different areas of the citty with one of the City’s fellows/interns as ‘back up.’

Ten enthusiastic volunteers are need for this project!

Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
