Did you know? February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month!
Carmen Martinez, a Puerto Rican community activist, reminds us that youth are valuable partners in our movement to build violence-free communities. You are invited to join CPAF’s engagement of young people in efforts to eradicate all forms of violence. CPAF’s programs support youth who serve as ambassadors for respect, mutuality, and healthy relationships in their own communities.
Two ways you can have a direct impact on young people by volunteering with CPAF:
- Join us for the API Youth Forum in July!
This exciting, one-day event brings together youth from L.A. and Orange Counties to discuss what it means to be a movement for change and how to work toward an end to violence in their communities. Volunteers are needed to sign up to help with day-of logistics, or event planning and material prep before the event.
- Contribute to our shelter-based Youth Program!
At our shelters, youth are invited to participate in a weekly youth group and occasional special activities. Volunteers are needed to help facilitate youth group meetings and plan/chaperone special activities. You can also sign up to serve as a mentor to be matched with an individual youth currently living in one of our shelters.
