Remote Volunteer / Teaching Opportunity for Project TechUp Hello Salesforce Nonprofit Community, We are really close to kicking off our pilot program called Project TechUp, and need volunteers to help teach and support our cohort. If you are not familiar, Project TechUp is a nonprofit Salesforce training initiative for low-income individuals located in Philadelphia. Our goal is for every successful candidate to be employed; while offering them a $15/hour stipend for the duration of the 3-month training. Our launch date is now set to May 17th, and we have two opportunities for volunteers: - Teach our Salesforce Admin curriculum: The classes will be held remotely on Zoom - Monday-Thursday, 1:00 - 3:00 pm EST. Each week is broken into topics, and you may pick one or more topics. Our preference is for a volunteer to at least teach for two days. - Lead office hours: We plan to have daily office hours at 4-5 pm EST. You may volunteer for two or more office hours to help candidates as they practice the concepts. Please reach out to me if you are interested, and I can share the schedule. Thank you, and please share this post with your user group, your organization, and your friends and colleagues! Sandeep Banga @Sandeep Banga sandeepb@acutedge.com More
