New Volunteer Project added to our Calendar

Activities with Teens (Children of the Night)
Van Nuys

Children of the Night is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1979, dedicated to assisting children between the ages of 11 and 17 who are forced to prostitute on the streets for food and a place to sleep. Residents follow a highly structured program that includes attending an on-site school where they study a curriculum individually tailored to their specific needs so they can reach age- appropriate grade levels in all subjects before leaving.

With the help of caseworkers, each youngster formulates a "life plan" and attends independent living classes, as well as participating in sports and recreational activities plus evening workshops in crafts, yoga, 12-step meetings, poetry, AIDS education, and more.

LA Works has the exciting opportunity to lead fun and enriching evening workshops for 12-15 of these teens. The Project Leader will have a planned activity for each session, and volunteers are needed to help facilitate. Please come join us in this unique volunteer opportunity!

This project will take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month starting January 19.
