As an F1 student, you are granted OPT (Optional Practical Training) to gain practical work experience after obtaining your degree in college. In general you will have 90 days of unemployment starting from your EAD start date. We know that finding a job within 90 days can be challenging for you (especially in today’s market). So, why not volunteer with Zenativity to gain career experience and maintain your OPT status at the same time? We have a number of F1 OPT students volunteering with us and we would love to have you in our community!
What will you do during the volunteer work?
We supervise OPT volunteers in gaining experience through projects that will benefit you, Zenativity, and the community. You can come up with your own project or we can assign you to an ongoing project. Weekly meetings will be scheduled to track the progress of the project and your growth. The volunteer work can be in person or remote and work hours are flexible, it is all up to you. You will also have a chance to team up with other volunteers to collaborate on a project together!

If you are a good fit with us, a member of the team will reach out to you and we can discuss the volunteer work in greater detail.
