  • 4 people are interested

On Saturday, December 14, we will hold our annual Winter Wonderland Shoppe. This event allows children to learn kindness and compassion by participating in the joy of holiday gift-giving by picking out presents for their caregivers and loved ones.

We invite you to volunteer with us. Volunteers will help setup and decorate the store the day before and assist throughout the event in greeting shoppers, helping shoppers find gifts, help operate a food & refreshments stand and ensure the overall success of this event for all participants. We need lots of help to make this event successful. If you speak a foreign language, especially Spanish or Arabic, please let us know. Feel free to sign up for multiple shifts if desired. Some, but certainly not all, volunteer jobs require volunteers over 18. We hope to see you there! (Signing up by Dec. 9 would be greatly appreciated so that we can assign volunteers to specific positions.)

Mission Statement

Community Empowerment Northern Virginia (CENV) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with this core belief: when one plants a S.E.E.D. by Strengthening, Educating, Empowering and Developing, strong communities will grow. To facilitate this movement, CENV offers one-to-one mentoring, tutoring, adult education workshops, leadership training, and much more. These services empower personal growth, support academic success and educate people toward developing self-sufficiency.

Description

Today’s society is challenged by an increasingly difficult world. Family problems, substance abuse, economic pressure, and the lure of gangs and delinquency threaten our youth physically and emotionally. Community Empowerment Northern Virginia is dedicated to providing community-based services that support, guide and inspire people to build life skills required to become resilient, self-sufficient adults. Using adult and peer mentoring to provide positive role models and promote skill development, Community Empowerment Northern Virginia strives to help build self-acceptance, strengthen school performance, and enhance executive functioning.

By providing people with positive role models in the community, Community Empowerment seeks to achieve the following objectives:

  • Provide people with a vital sense of belonging
  • Give people a sense that the greater community also cares about them
  • Move people forward on their way to conscious and self-sufficient adulthood
  • Support people on their journey to discover their true potential
  • Provide people with access to the resources necessary to achieve social and academic success
  • Help more people graduate high school and move on to higher education that supports their dreams
  • Create an array of services that complement the web of services already existing in our communities
  • Educate and empower parents and families to be more involved in family and community growth
