Be part of the change – volunteer!

Merit America is always excited to grow our volunteer pool. Our volunteers are committed to mentoring learners in professional development to instill confidence for their new career paths.

Why Volunteer?

With just a 1-hour commitment, join our virtual events to engage directly with learners, shaping a future where family-sustaining wages and high-growth careers are attainable based on merit, not money.

Participating isn’t just about skill assessment—it’s nurturing leadership within your team, contributing to your company’s corporate responsibility goals, sharing your knowledge, and playing a pivotal role in building a more inclusive and diverse workforce.

Behavioral Mock Interviews

Help our learners build confidence before going off into interviews with future employers. No HR or technical background is required and we’ll supply you with all the materials needed!

Host A Professional Development Event

Share your expertise in resume writing, cybersecurity, finance, DEI and more! Choose from a variety of events such as Industry Deep Dives, Professional Development Webinars, Career Celebration Panels, and Day in the Life webinars.

Technical Coding Challenges

Our coding challenge is a time for Java professionals to provide real-time advice to learners before they go off into their real-life technical interviews! This event requires at least 1+ years of live coding experience in Java, SQL, Spring, and REST APIs.
