⚙ EMPOWERING YOUNG ADULTS: Lifeskills for Recently Homeless Youth
WHAT: Assist with life-skill mentoring sessions for recently homeless youth aged 18-24 at Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission.
ABOUT HOPE OF THE VALLEY: Hope of the Valley's goal is to meet the needs of the “whole” person — spiritually, emotionally, and physically - by offering food, shelter, showers, and health services to L.A.'s poorest.
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: Lend your professional insights on successful “adulting” to young men and women transitioning out of homelessness. You'll be scheduled on an as-needed basis depending on the topics the residents request. Current topics are listed below but will be regularly updated:
- financial skills (savings, investing, IRA/401k, etc)
- business start-up advice
- music industry career advice (getting a foot in the door, writing, producing, getting your work into the hands of the right people, etc)
- overcoming a complicated work-history (gaps in employment, criminal record, etc)
SPECIAL NOTES: Please note we're currently only able to schedule volunteers who feel comfortable leading instruction in one of the above areas.
IMPACT: These young transitional shelter residents are full of questions but are lacking in adult role-models and professional networks to help them get answers. Your expertise empowers them to develop knowledge, build confidence, and move on to success.
