Hire Heroes USA is fortunate to have devoted volunteers from across the country who help us empower transitioning military members, veterans and spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce. These dedicated volunteers are making a real difference in the lives our clients’ families. We always need additional volunteers who are willing to share their time, knowledge and experience, since our clients are interested in a wide variety of industries. The majority of our volunteers participate in remote opportunities. This means you can volunteer with Hire Heroes USA from the comfort of your home or office. Most opportunities are scheduled as needed, so there is no requirement to set aside a certain number of hours every week.
Needed Industries include, but are not limited to: Federal sector, Security/Law Enforcement, IT (hardware and software), Human Resources, Emergency Management, Operations, Logistics, Intelligence, Project Management, Finance.
Mock Interviews: Help a client prepare to successfully interview for employment opportunities. You’ll ask typical interview questions, as if you were conducting a real interview, gauge the client’s responses, and then provide honest and friendly feedback about what the client did well and what they might want to consider doing differently.
Career Counseling: Speak with clients about specific needs or interests, which are related to their job search. The conversation could include topics such as LinkedIn, networking strategies, an industry or position the client would like to learn more about, or career planning.
Guiding Federal Sector Applicants: An Urgent Need! Speak with a client who is interested in working for the federal government. You could provide advice on the USA Jobs portal, what a federal resume should look like, interviewing for a federal position and/or any general tips for federal applications.
Workshop Support: Help our staff at Transition Workshops in various locations by conducting mock interviews onsite and/or educating participants about specific industries, trends and employment opportunities. Volunteers should be located within a convenient geographic proximity to the workshop site. View upcoming workshops.
Special Event Support: Hire Heroes USA has a few annual special events that require volunteer support to ensure success. Join us at one or more throughout the year!
- 5k Race for Heroes: This family-friendly 5k features a paved, flat route through vibrant Alpharetta, Georgia. Volunteers assist with runner check in, water stations and other jobs on race day. Visit the website.
- Salute to Veterans Golf Classic: Takes place at the stunning Country Club of the South in Johns Creek, Georgia; volunteers help with registration and other various duties. Learn more.
Fundraising for Hire Heroes USA: We welcome and encourage you to plan, coordinate and conduct an independent special event in your local community with proceeds benefiting Hire Heroes USA. A special event can be anything: something small, such as asking for donations in lieu of gifts at a party or wedding; or a larger community event like a carnival, bike ride or sports tournament. If you’re not sure what to do, we can help you decide what kind of event might work for you. We are also happy to help promote your event through our website, e-newsletters and various social media channels.
Photography: Help support Hire Heroes USA by using your photography skills! We are in need of volunteer photographers to come to our Workshops and take professional headshot photos of participants. Photographers can also help by attending any of our events and taking photos.
Outreach: Help support our Veteran Transition Specialists by conducting regular follow-up with clients via phone and email to learn where they are and how they are doing in their job searches, applications, and employment processes. Volunteers must agree to a background check for this opportunity and will receive additional training on documentation procedures.
