Volunteer - A Window Between Worlds

  • Apr 20, 2013 · 10:15 AM
  • A Window Between Worlds

I love doing volunteer work. It’s a great way to give back to the community and a chance to meet new people! Charities are grateful that you simply donate your time.  I have always had a fun time volunteering for A Window Between Worlds. Some of the volunteer work includes: art project prep, creative and artistic tasks, database entry, general office help, program assistance and event support. You do not have to be an artist to volunteer.

 

About this charity from their website:

www.awbw.org

A Window Between Worlds is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence. Through creative expression, battered women and children gain a sense of renewal and power. Their images of hope, survival and strength educate the public and become "a window between worlds" for survivors taking steps to change their lives.

 

Since 1991, AWBW has provided creative expression as a healing tool for over 112,000 battered women and their children in crisis shelters, transitional homes, and outreach centers throughout the United States.

 

By providing an environment that promotes healing, art workshops help women and children to develop a renewed sense of hope and possibility that profoundly impacts future decisions regarding the direction of their lives, their relationships, and how to stay safe. Art empowers survivors to transform how they view themselves, allowing them to see past the abusive messages they learned from their batterers and rebuild their self-confidence.

 

Please Note:

Since these charities rely on help from volunteers, please be considerate with your RSVP. Please do not sign up for this event if you are not serious about attending. It’s not cool when I tell the charity that 10 people are signed up to volunteer and then only 5 people show up.

 

Parking: this event location is in a residential area in Venice. There is only street parking so you may have to circle around a couple of times until you find a parking spot.
