About

WHO: L.A. Works RSVP is partnering with the Salvation Army in Van Nuys to support their Veterans' Employment services by recruiting volunteers who will provide ongoing support to veterans looking for work.

WHAT: Volunteers will be one-on-one mentors paired with a veteran who is re-entering the workforce. This event will be an initial group meeting, starting with a panel, to introduce you and your fellow mentors to your mentees. Afterward the timetable varies, but the relationship will involve meeting with your mentee approximately every two weeks for up to six months, simply to check in on their progress and offer your experience and advice.

WHY: The Salvation Army provides employment services, but lacks the resources to provide ongoing mentoring. Your help is crucial to these veterans' success in finding sustainable jobs.
