Want to apply your unique skills to volunteering as a mentor with a disadvantaged youth?”
Please join us at NextSpace for an informational lunch to hear from David Durand of CCEO YouthBuild about this unique opportunity to become a caring adult mentor for a high school student aged 16-18. Mentors play a crucial role in helping students develop socially, culturally, and emotionally which will assist them in being constructive citizens in our society. If you have 4 hours a month to give, you can make a real difference in the life of a high school student– and lend a hand to someone who can grow and develop into a productive adult. Mentored youth are more likely to feel confident, do better in school, abstain from drugs and alcohol, and feel supported by a caring adult who listens.”
This event is co-sponsored by NextSpace LA and CCEO YouthBuild. Pizza and drinks will be provided.
I have loved being at NextSpace over the past year. Being a freelancer, I really liked my life, but it was so hard sometimes to feel connected enough to other people—just working in coffee shops, or at home. I’m surrounded by a group of people who are self-selected to be smart, fairly outgoing, and at the top of their game (whatever that might be). Being in that atmosphere is extremely helpful, and brings out the best in me. I’ve gotten a lot of work from being here as well, just from sharing what I do, and it has helped me hone what it is I’m offering, and get quick feedback about what’s working, and what I wanted to change. This has impacted my business very positively.
