Imagine LA Mentor Volunteer

United Way of Greater Los Angeles and Imagine LA need you to make a true impact in our fight against homelessness.

Imagine LA's volunteer mentors play an essential role in fulfilling our mission. They are eager to work in a team of like-minded peers and commit to a long-term volunteer position that’s incredibly fulfilling.

Imagine LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of homelessness, poverty and neglect for families. Imagine LA’s Family Empowerment and Mentorship (FEM) Program provides mentors to families who have exited homelessness and the mentors walk alongside these families through their journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

One-on-one mentors (for adult & youth) are there to help out with anything from (but not limited to) teaching their mentee how to cook, finding child care for their small kids, helping them locate jobs, or just for advice.

The head of household will also have a Financial Wellness mentor who will help with managing finances, budgeting, and tips on saving, along with any other finance goals that the family may have. The Finance mentor meets with the family at a minimum of once a month.

All mentors will be required to have weekly conference call with the other members on the team as well as attend quarterly meetings which will include your Family Team Manager from Imagine LA, the mentor team and the family. This is a time where the family lists new goals he/she would like to commit to along with any goals they’ve completed already.

Alongside mentorship, Imagine LA hosts Family Fun events where people looking to learn more about our program can volunteer to serve our families.
