New Project! Fun With Toddlers (4th Saturday of every month)

Join us for a fun filled afternoon spent with the children ages 2 through 5 at the Sydney M. Irmas Transitional Living Facility in North Hollywood. Once a month L.A. Works will visit the facility with their volunteers to engage the toddlers in arts and crafts and educational activities. Our goal is to help the children build the basic skills that they will need in order to become successful students. As volunteers, you'll be briefed and assist in carrying out the afternoon's activity. It will typically include a main project, followed by some free time with the children to play games, read stories, etc. If any advance preparation is needed on your part, you'll be emailed with specific project details.

All upbeat and outgoing volunteers are welcome to sign up, but all volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
