*EMPOWERING YOUNG ADULTS: Lifeskills for Recently Homeless Youth

Location: Burbank CA, 91502

Date: 8/5/2020 Spots Remaining: 24


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 PROJECT: 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)
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.

ACCESSIBILITY: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at info@laworks.com.
