Change Lives Through Jobs! Volunteer in the San Fernando Valley! Spanish Speakers Needed!
Chrysalis is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment. The men and women who turn to Chrysalis often have multiple barriers to finding employment including homelessness, limited education, criminal records and substance abuse issues. Since 1984, they have assisted over 51,000 people on the path to self-sufficiency at three centers throughout Los Angeles County where poverty and homelessness are most pervasive: Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Pacoima in the San Fernando Valley.
Chrysalis volunteers facilitate job preparation classes and help individuals facing significant barriers to employment build resumes and practice their interview skills. Not only do volunteers play an integral role in empowering clients to build crucial job search skills, they instill the self-esteem needed to succeed in the interview and beyond.
