One informal way the County as an employer seeks to make its mark on the community is through our employee programs. The County’s newest service opportunity for our employees, the Los Angeles County Employee Youth Mentoring Program, was launched this Tuesday through a unanimous vote by the Board. This new volunteer program provides an incredible opportunity to connect the County’s diverse and knowledgeable workforce with youth in need of positive adult role models.
By partnering with well-established mentoring organizations in Los Angeles County, such as the Boys and Girls Club, EmpowHER Institute, Sparks Program, and many others, this valuable program will provide yet another outlet for our workforce to use theirs skills, passion, and commitment to benefit our community. As Supervisor Solis stated, "As mentors, our County employees can influence our future leaders by encouraging our youth to grow more confident of their abilities and have a more expansive view of their potential.”
