Instructors for Online Student Training 

Year Up’s training has gone 100% virtual and is now provided online. They are seeking instructors (via Zoom, 50 minutes in length--30 minutes of instruction, plus Q&A) on interviewing, presentation skills and public speaking. Scheduling is flexible around instructor availability
