Our business coaching services are the hallmark of our unique loan program, and we rely on volunteer mentors who are passionate about entrepreneurship.
Our mentors work individually with clients on everything from marketing and bookkeeping to HR and industry-specific issues, and are invited to participate in panel discussions. Some of our clients and mentors have formed long-lasting relationships and many clients have even graduated to become mentors themselves!
We're a small, cooperative team, where everyone pulls together to get it all done. Sometimes we have cool projects that we don't have the manpower to do- so we bring in amazing project volunteers!
Whether you're excited by spreadsheets or pitch kits, we probably have a project for you!
All volunteer projects at Working Solutions are skills-based, and we'll work with you to find a project you're interested in.
If you want to learn more about our work with less time commitment, consider volunteering at one of our events. It's a great opportunity to learn about the Bay Area microfinance landscape and meet some amazing clients and community leaders.
