We are looking for volunteers to help us with Marketing, Social Media and/or Fundraising.
The County of Los Angeles has more than 32,000 youth in the foster care system. That's not a typo. Los Angeles has more foster youth than the next highest STATE population, NY.
50% of foster youth will be homeless, incarcerated, and/or institutionalized upon leaving the foster care system.
42% of foster youth will not graduate high school
Only 3% of Foster Youth go to college.
Because they are changing placements so often, Foster youth can attend anywhere from 7-20 schools while in care.
80% of Death Row inmates have been in foster care.
YOU CAN HELP!!!
You will work along side the Executive Director to promote the awareness of The Academy Project and to help generate funding to support and grow The Academy Project's programs, developing partnerships and sponsorships with business, corporations, and private donors.
What does that mean, exactly?
We need help keeping our website and social media sites current and engaging.
We need help brainstorming new and exciting ways to get more and more people to know about and support TAP. We need help with research, writing copy and press releases. We are working on a variety of grant proposals and could use the help of experienced grant writers. There is a lot to be done and we could really use your help. Join us as we change the lives of foster, homeless, and at-risk youth.
