Chrysalis

Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment.

Our philosophy is that a steady job is the single most important step in a person’s transition out of poverty and onto a pathway to long-term self-sufficiency. Offering a hand up, rather than a hand out, Chrysalis empowers our clients to complete a self-directed job search.

YOU can make a real difference in the lives of the men and women in Los Angeles who are willing, ready, and able to become self-sufficient through employment.

Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in empowering clients to build specific skills related to the job search process and instilling the self-esteem needed to succeed beyond the interview. There are many ways that volunteers help to support our programs, including:

  • One-on-one resume preparation
  • One-on-one practice interviews
  • Class facilitation
  • Computer lab assistance (currently unavailable due to COVID-19)
  • Clothing & Resource Room Organizing (currently unavailable due to COVID-19)

We have weekly, bi-weekly and monthly volunteer opportunities available between the hours of 8a-4p. For more details please go to our website https://changelives.org/volunteer/

About Chrysalis

Location:

522 S Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404, US

Mission Statement

Chrysalis is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to get ready for, find, and retain employment. The men and women who turn to Chrysalis often have some of the highest barriers to finding employment such as homelessness, limited access to education, prior convictions, and substance recovery issues. Since 1984, we have assisted over 71,000 people on the path to self-sufficiency throughout SoCal where poverty and homelessness are most pervasive: Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Anaheim, and Pacoima in the San Fernando Valley.

Description

Our Volunteers are essential to this mission, and work directly with clients to help them gain employment. You can:

Facilitate classes (job search, money management, stress management, goal planning, computers, recovery, incarceration etc.)

Perform One-on-one resume building, interview practice and computer help

Provide Job search assistance

Sort donation items

We seek volunteers with excellent communication skills who want to make an impact in their local community. You will be directly involved in helping people enter the working world and regain their confidence, pride and stability.

Volunteer opportunities are available Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. Training is provided, and we ask for a 4 month commitment. Opportunities are available in the San Fernando Valley, Downtown LA, Santa Monica, and Anaheim.
