P.S. I Love You Foundation, founded in 1998 and currently reaching over 850 children a year, is a 501C( 3) non-profit organization dedicated to empower, inspire and educate at-risk children through unique educational and inspirational enrichment programs in order to influence: Health & Well-Being Positive Attitudes Social Development HOPE Our program goals are to generate positive and personal differences in the lives of many children, so they, in turn, can achieve productive, happy and healthy lifestyles, habits and attitudes. Isn't that what we all desire? In the years, 2008 and beyond, our objective is to reach over 1500 at-risk children a year and our volunteers are the reason we have succeeded for almost a decade. Since there are currently no paid staff members, 100% of any support raised goes directly to the implementation, development and maintenance of our programs. We have two types of program categories: Educational Programs and Community Volunteer-Outreach Programs
PS I Love You Foundation is a grass roots organization run by volunteers for a decade. Our goal is to directly and positively impact the lives of at-risk youth in Southern California in the areas of Education, Health & Well-Being and Social Development. The ages we reach are from K through 5th grade. We have during and after- school programs as well as an annual community volunteer event called Adopt a Child for One Day.
All funds received go toward the operation and implementation of our programs.
I have been volunteering with this organization as an instructional designer for a few months, and it has been a really positive experience. While the program is very structured, there is a lot of flexibility in how to build courses. They also work well with my busy schedule. I would recommend P.S. I Love You to anyone interested in a volunteer opportunity.
Yoga 123 is a wonderful organization that works with many different schools, mainly in the central Los Angeles area. They have developed a yoga program that engages kids with their bodies, minds and hearts. The kids I’ve worked with have been a joy and are very happy for the opportunity to do yoga. There’s a lot of support for new teachers and ongoing gatherings and workshops to share experiences and hone skills.
