The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The purpose of FFSC’s Second Chances Youth Summit is to, not only, inspire 9th-12th grade Los Angeles youth to develop a sense of community, but to also create a space for such youth to actively plan and have agency in determining their futures. During such a summit we seek to provide attendees with workshop sessions that explore issues that directly affect them, a college/career fair, health/nutrition/fitness education, and discussions that are geared towards civic and service engagement. We are looking for individuals that can help secure panelists, health care professionals, education professionals, and colleges. We also need to recruit over 250 students to attend this event!
