REPORTS TO: Executive Director & Program Manager


Seed House is a Non-Profit organization that believes that ownership and accountability for one's own life establish leadership and self-sufficiency in one's own life. We believe that having a safe and secure environment allows an individual to focus on personal development. Healthy neurodevelopment is predicated upon the establishment of close nurturing relationships and environmental stimulation. Involvement in the decision-making of one's own life shows value to the young adult involved. By addressing the total well-being of a young adult you allow full restoration from past hurts, encourage critical thinking, and develop life and vocational skills.

Mentors primary responsibilities are:

As a mentor, your responsibility will be to measure the progress of your mentee and identify the areas of growth. We call them Entre - Mentors because you are not just a mentor but teaching them how to be the entrepreneur leader, thinking of creative ways to advance their lives. The mentor will be responsible for monitoring the growth in each youth adult's life. Build a personal relationship, with the purpose to execute proper transitioning into adulthood. The mentor should have great communication and have an abundance of compassion and patience. Mentors should be able to view you as a partner in their journey of development. As a mentor, you will be required to meet with your mentee once a week. We also ask that you will be available for your mentee to contact you regarding any questions on personal development. All mentors will be required to submit a weekly log on the status of your mentee. All mentors will meet together every other week to discuss the barriers the mentee is reaching and brainstorm on concepts to reach their goal. Seed House Project will also be hosting a quarterly 2 day training to enhance the quality of our mentor program. All mentors are required to attend the training .

About SEED HOUSE PROJECT

Location:

8539 NESTLE AVE, NORTHRIDGE, CA 91325, US

Mission Statement

Seed House Project aids and inspires Transitional Age Youth in the Los Angeles area who are experiencing homelessness by providing a success-driven live/work space, access to education, and individualized mentorship.

Description

Seed House Project (SHP) is a 501(c)(3) organization servicing transitional age youth (TAY) who are experiencing homelessness. The TAY community are young people aged 16 to 24 who are aging out of the foster care system or state custody, and experience added challenges developing into adulthood. One of the vulnerabilities the TAY community experiences is homelessness; 20 to 30% of aged-out foster youth experience homelessness. Although statistics surrounding homelessness experienced by youth aged out of the juvenile justice system are more difficult to nail down in the research, studies estimate percentages exceeding 25%.

‚Äč

Since 2014, SHP assists TAY communities experiencing homelessness by providing foundational support for three pillars of successful transition into adulthood: providing a home, supporting job skills training and placement, and creating personalized mentorships. We believe that in addition to providing stable housing and job placement services, it is necessary for these youth to experience one-on-one, personalized, consistent mentorship from a mentor with whom the youth can develop a lasting bond. SHP is committed to inspiring TAY to become healthy, productive adults by providing not only stable and safe housing, education, and employment programs; but also, life skills training, financial literacy, and real-world advice from a one-on-one tailored mentorship experience.
