HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Students can play a significant role in the push to end homelessness. You are bright, well-connected and have meaningful insight into how today's youth view various social inequities. The skills, passion, and commitment you bring to the table can help shape the behavior of your generation, including influencing your peers' understanding of how they play a role in bringing healing and justice to local communities, cities, states and the world.
LA Family Housing (LAFH) helps people transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing and services. The Youth Action Council (YAC) is a strong network of compassionate students dedicated to connecting resources to the LAFH community through intentional service, advocacy and education. Students must be in 10th, 11th or 12th grade to join the YAC.
Time, compassion and a desire to make a difference! Transportation to and from required service activities and meetings is also necessary.
Students must be in grades 10, 11 or 12 to participate in the YAC.
To learn more or for questions or an application for the YAC, contact Melanie by email at MBerringer@LAFH.org. Please note students must be in grades 10, 11 or 12 to participate in the Youth Action Council.
