Children's Book Writers of Los Angeles (CBW-LA) Message Board › Looking for Mentors for At Risk Youth
|Nutschell Anne W.||
I was contacted by 24 Foundation, a nonprofit group which aims to help at risk youth by using the arts as a healing tool.
They're looking for mentors for their writing classes, and I thought I'd share their email with you in case you were available to help them out.
It's a great cause, and I'm thinking of helping out myself (if I can only figure out how to rearrange my schedule this November!)
Please let me know if you're interested, and I can put you in touch with the executive administrator.
They're also in need of mentors for acting, dance, vocals, visual arts, guitar, piano, photography, drums--and other arts. If you know anyone who might be interested in helping out some teens for 4 Saturdays in November, please feel free to forward this email to them.
EMAIL FROM 24 FOUNDATION:
My name is Isla Forgeron and I am the Executive Administer for a non-profit organization called The 24 Foundation. We partner with Sunburst Youth Challenge Academy a program run by/located at the Los Alamitos National Guard facility. The 24 Foundation uses the arts as a catalyst for healing the soul. Our fall session is coming up in October and we are in need of writing mentors. I'd love to speak to someone about your group getting involved with our program this fall. Please let me know who I should speak with about moving forward. Thank you for your time and I look forward to speaking with you. Feel free to visit our website www.24foundation.org
The Fall Session for 24 Foundation is just around the corner!

We are so excited to be expanding the Catalyst program with Sunburst Youth Challenge Academy and mentoring all 200 of the cadets, girls and boys! Ideally we need 50 mentors, and the facility has requested that they all be 21 and over. Help us reach our goal!
