Who is a Potential Employer?
This seems like a simple question, but most of the time we think it is only the person doing the hiring for a specific job. But is this true? No. According to Pongo – an online resource for job seekers, it is easier to get a job and to get a better job if you “KNOW SOMEONE: and this is why it is important to meet people, particularly people that work in the field in which you want to get a job. And what better way to meet those people than to volunteer?
For more information — click on this link – Build Your Network and Uncover the Hidden Job Market – and then consider joining the Cole Holland Volunteer Corps – besides working as victims for mock disasters the Corps provides students and others with volunteer opportunities that will strengthen skills and open doors — join today.

Thousands injured, hundreds dead!
This might sound like a headline from New Orleans or Haiti, but it can and WILL happen here. One way to limit the destruction and loss of life is by preparing and practicing emergency responses. This is just what Utah plans to do on Jan. 5th and Jan. 26th. Two mock disasters will test the strength of our emergency response teams including transportation, assessment, resources and communication. Cole Holland College’s Cole Holland Volunteer Corps is providing more than 90% of the “patients” (volunteers) for this and other mock disasters in the community.
Why volunteer to be a patient?
First it is fun. It really is. But beyond that, it gives you a chance to learn about the responsiveness of your community resources, introduces you to clinicians and key players in health care otherwise known as POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS and provides you with a behind the scene’s look at emergency preparedness. Please join the Corps and help out your community. Call Tyler at 801.759.5164 to join the Cole Holland Volunteer Corps and to participate in events throughout the year.
MOST people are not homeless for long. An illness, a job loss, an accident or even a death in the family can lead to homelessness. Cole Holland College has a long tradition of helping the Road Home help our neighbors to get off the streets and back “home.” We invite our students and our community to volunteer this season for the Road Home. Many opportunities exist and even families and kids can help. Our special love for the Road Home generates our investment of time and effort. We can help you find just the right kind of gesture to make including helping with the Radio-Thon donation drive on December 20th and 21st, helping set up and take down the Candy Cane Store and other events. Call Karen today at 801.562.2663 for more information.
One way to help is to donate hours or products to the Candy Cane Corner. What is the Candy Cane Corner?
a holiday store that provides a dignified and empowering opportunity for low-income families and individuals who are participating in programs at the YWCA of Salt Lake, The Road Home, and Volunteers of America, Utah to select new holiday gifts for their families.
Each year Candy Cane Corner ensures that hundreds of families have a warm and full holiday season. We are proud to celebrate our 15th year of helping families in need celebrate the holidays. This wonderful holiday program is only possible because of the support and generosity we receive from our community.
Families, individuals, volunteers, and our community!
Candy Cane Corner benefits families and individuals receiving services from the YWCA of Salt Lake City, The Road Home, or Volunteers of America, Utah by giving them an opportunity to select gifts for the holidays. It also provides a heart warming volunteer opportunity through out December for anyone interested in lending a hand. Most of all, Candy Cane Corner benefits our community as we build strong relationships among our partner agencies, volunteers, supporters and the people we serve.
Families and individuals receiving services from either the YWCA of Salt Lake City, The Road Home, or Volunteers of America, Utah are eligible for Candy Cane Corner.
If you are a client of one of these agencies, please confirm your eligibility for Candy Cane Corner with your case manager.
We need new items to stock the holiday store. We provide gifts for all ages and sizes, including clothing, shoes, books, toys, and household items.
View our full Candy Cane Corner Wish List Here!
Having a facility large enough to accommodate gift items and shoppers is our first need each season. Candy Cane Corner needs at minimum of 4,000 square feet on a ground level and ample parking for volunteers and clients. We prefer to keep the store in the down town Salt Lake area, to better serve those assisted by our three partner organizations.
We hope to fill our need for space by the end of September each year. If you think you may have a location that would work well for Candy Cane Corner, please contact:
Development Director – The Road Home
801-819-7291 or email@example.com
Candy Cane Corner opens the first week of December through the Christmas holiday. We are open seven days a week for clients, volunteers and donors.
Monday-Friday 12:00p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday 12:00p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Candy Cane Corner is not open to the general public to “shop” for gifts. Clients receiving services through our partner agencies should make an appointment with their case manager to visit the store.
We are open to anyone wishing to donate during our regular store hours.
To sign up for volunteer hours, please visit our volunteer page. A volunteer appointment is not required for individuals, but is strongly recommended. An appointment is required for volunteer groups of 5 or more. Volunteer hours at Candy Cane Corner may be earlier or later than regular store hours to allow for restocking & clean-up.
In 2011 Candy Cane Corner helped 551 families celebrate the holidays. 1,227 children were given new clothes and gifts through Candy Cane Corner last year and 631 adults also received needed items.
This year, we anticipate being able to help even more people, but we can’t do it with out your help!
The Road Home is a private non-profit social services agency that assists individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake County and along the Wasatch Front. The Road Home provides emergency shelter and personalized case management to help people identify and overcome the obstacles that have led them to becoming homeless. In addition to operating the largest shelter in Utah, we also address a spectrum of needs that people experiencing homelessness encounter from supplying a bus token to providing comprehensive housing programs that help people move into permanent housing as quickly as possible.
Medical Assistants are in high demand in the US and in Utah. According to the US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook employment is expected to grow by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will stem from physicians hiring more medical assistants to do routine administrative and clinical duties so that physicians can see more patients. At $5,985, the program is one of the least expensive programs in Utah, yet is fully accredited. Small classes and excellent staff make learning fun and easier too. And the supportive administrative staff is great to work with – including helping with transportation, housing, study groups, job placement and tutoring.
Cole Holland College offers a 15 month program offered in 6-ten week modules. The program includes placement in a 160-hour unpaid externship. We have a 100% placement rate for our graduates and work with dozens of health care organizations. Our students have been hired by the VA, Hunstman Cancer Institute, IHC and more.
For more information about how you can become a Medical Assistant and maybe even graduate debt-free too, call us for a tour. 801.759.5164
Cole Holland College is an advocate for civic participation as a means to enhance professional and personal development. Participating with others in group activities in the health care field exposes the volunteer to new people, new ideas and sharpens the skill set, the mind, and the heart.
As a member of this team, you will have the opportunity to engage in learning exercises designed to test the emergency responsiveness of hospitals, ER rooms, clinics, helicopter response teams, emergency response vehicles, fire departments, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, pharmacies and other organizations associated with the health care delivery system. Living in the natural world any community is at risk from Mother Nature. Living in Utah along the fault line we are particularly vulnerable to a major life threatening earthquake. In order for any community to be prepared for any kind of natural disaster, attack, or emergency, health care delivery systems must “test” their plans, personnel, equipment, and cooperation among many diverse health care organizations.
Our Volunteer Corps is a non-profit organization dedicated to recruiting actively engaged citizens to act as volunteers for such training missions conducted throughout the state by a myriad of health care and emergency response organizations. Joining the Corps is easy and free and you never have to participate in any activity unless you want to. But your help now could mean the difference between life and death in the face of a REAL emergency so we appreciate you helping out each time you can.
To join, you must:
