Jacob, Employment Services Volunteer
Jacob’s More Hands More Hearts volunteer story:
“I came to Manny Cantor through NY Cares as a volunteer who practiced English conversation with English Learners. When the program broke for the summer, I was looking for a way to fill my available volunteer time. I was pessimistic when Deb (More Hands More Hearts program manager) approached me to teach computer skills to the Employment Assistance area. I had had 20-30 opportunities before Manny Cantor that never had the support and organization this opportunity has proven to provide. I now provide volunteer hours to two programs with two different impacts for clients who are eager to learn and I can see the direct result of the work I am doing on the increase in their skills. I am making a difference in the lives. I debrief with staff after each training on excel, word and resume building, I am a valued member of the Manny Cantor team.”
