Volunteer

Volunteers are integral to ensuring Empowerment Resources Inc. (ERI) is able to fulfill its mission of empowering children and families to lead healthy, productive lives. ERI volunteers contribute their time and energy to create meaningful programs for the people we serve. We are always looking for individual volunteers and businesses who wish to share their commitment and gifts either directly with children and families or behind-the-scenes. Volunteers can commit to as little as a few hours a month or for a lifetime. Empowerment Resources Inc. is searching for volunteers with talents including, but not limited to:

  • Marketing and Communication
  • Administrative Support (assist with mailings and making phone calls)
  • Mentoring (Journey Into Womanhood program only)
  • Tutorial (in subjects like;  Reading, Writing, Science, Math, History, Spanish )
  • Guest Speaker/Presenter
  • Counseling (must be licensed)
  • Leadership (Advisory Council or Board of Directors)
  • Grant Writing
  • Fundraising
  • Event Planning

Note: Empowerment Resources, Inc., is run by dedicated community volunteers.  All volunteers must go through an application process, which includes an interview, background screenings, DCF Affidavit of Good Moral Character and letters of recommendation before they are allowed to volunteer with the program. All volunteers who serve as mentors must complete a comprehensive training by the Jacksonville Children’s Commission. Only adult females are allowed to volunteer at Journey Into Womanhood youth meetings.
