Community Outreach

    SHRM Community Outreach Initiatives

    The Community Outreach initiatives of the Illinois Fox Valley SHRM Chapter extend beyond the community of Human Resources Professionals.  Our Chapter is committed to promoting initiates to enhance and provide HR support for local human capital, the workforce and the community.  Our vision involves demonstrating our support and voice for growth within the HR Community by offering programs, cultivating relationships, sharing knowledge and access to our resources with aspiring HR professtionals.

    We welcome new members to share in our vision.  If you are interested in joining Community Outreach please contact Carmen M. Lainez at

    Current Opportunities

    Community Outreach has been working with District U-46 for the past few years on the behalf of ILFVSHRM.  Nancy Colemen, U-46 Alignments Executive Director, and her group are asking for our help with Resume Workshops in District U-46 for the following students:

    • Seniors who are preparing to participate in a Senior Job Fair on 4/20/2023.  These seniors are seeking employment opportunities required for graduation.
    • Juniors preparing for their Summer internships.  Also required for their course.

    The industries in which these students are pursuing include business, engineering, culinary, technical, healthcare/nursing, and others.

    The students were required to have a draft resume ready by 2/13/2023.

    How we can help:  Alignment is looking for volunteers to work one on one with the students to coach and edit their resumes during the dates and times listed below.  Please take a look below.  Anyone interested in volunteering should provide their name, contact information (email/phone), the industry in which they work or are interested in, and the times they are available to Carmen.  U-46 will work with the volunteer to match them with a student in their industry and schedule a meeting time for both the volunteer and student.
