Volunteer with us

Support the CDI Scholars on their path to internships, careers, and beyond.

If you’re interested in volunteering with CDI or having a Scholar connect with your organization, please contact us.

CDI Scholars are passionate about pursuing internships and careers, but they often don’t know where to begin. That’s why we need the support of our volunteers.

To many first-generation students, the world beyond college is an intimidating place. They’re unsure how to create a résumé or follow up after a job interview. A key part of CDI’s mission is guiding our Scholars socially and professionally. From teaching Scholars to make small talk to preparing them as they interview for jobs, our work with our students extends far beyond the classroom. We’re seeking volunteers to participate in quarterly events including mock interviews, career discussion panels, and networking events. We are also always looking for internship and job shadowing opportunities for our students.

We are currently seeking volunteers to mentor current CDI College Scholars for our newly launched Career Mentor Initiative. For more information, please visit our Mentor page.
