The Los Angeles CARES Mentoring Movement is hosting a mentor orientation on
Saturday, March 23 from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the African American Firefighter
Museum. Volunteers interested in mentoring a young person are invited to this event designed to inform, educate and recruit mentors. Research proves that mentoring is a low-cost, high-results solution to a deepening crisis in our community.
Unfortunately, Black adult mentors are grossly underrepresented as volunteers and our most precious resource; our youth are in need of your presence, guidance and support.
Los Angeles CARES Mentoring Movement is dedicated to recruiting and connecting mentors with local youth-serving organizations to help guide our struggling children to academic and social success. Join us in learning how you can support at-risk youth who desperately need the guidance—a mentor like you can give.
We will have representatives from National CARES and other youth organizations available to provide you various ways to participate as a mentor and to answer any questions or concerns you may have moving forward with a rewarding experience working with our youth.
Mentor Orientation will be held:
Saturday, March 23rd at 10:00am to 12:00pm
Location: African American Firefighter Museum
1401 South Central Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90021
