Adults: We Need You!
We are seeking adults who have an interest in helping high school students (juniors and seniors) and first-year college students go from good to great. Share the wisdom you have accumulated over the course of your lifetime. Help these young adults understand what the world will expect from them.
There are four ways you can get involved:
- MENTOR our Rainmakers Candidates (participating students) and help them become Rainmakers. Never leave your home or office — all interactions between our volunteer Mentors and our student Candidates occur via telecommunications technologies. Give us two hours or two days of volunteer time. You won’t make a cent but you will make a better young adult! There are a wide variety of activities you can join — from judging their team projects to conducting mock telephone interviews.
- MOTIVATE our Rainmakers Candidates as a compensated part-time Site Director for a Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program in your area. Channel your entrepreneurial energy into something that has great social value, help us expand our network of high-impact programs, and get paid for your work. Site Directors must be available in the after-school hours for occasional team meetings, on select days for in-school activities and Site Director training, and occasionally available by phone in the evenings as necessary.
- MANAGE one or more of our Rainmakers Candidates during a two-week, unpaid, off-site internship during which the intern will submit a product or project that could provide some (albeit minimal) benefit to your business. While your business may never use the product the intern delivers to you, managing a teen through the process of being an accountable worker will stay with him or her forever. We expect you to demand a complete and error-free project with an on-time delivery.
- MAINTAIN — or help us establish — a Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program in your local high school by offering to defray all or part of the annual costs to deliver our program to the students in local high schools. We keep costs low by deploying some of our program components in academic classrooms and we deliver most of our after-school activities via distance technologies..
