Lend Your Expertise to Help Our Students Craft Professional Resumes

Our NAF Academy students are getting ready to apply for internships for Summer 2024.  In order to do so, they need a professional resume.  Some have yet to create a resume and some could use some professional help to edit and finish them.

  • We are looking for professionals to work with our students either in person or virtually to get their resumes ready for the job application process.
  • The workshop will run three days - come volunteer for 1 day, 2 days or even 3.
