The Valley Young Professionals Civic committee plans and organizes events to serve our local community.
Civic Committee Includes:
Assisteens – VYP gets involved with the Assisteens Project that is put on by the Assistance League. The aims of participation are to develop a sense of community responsibility, self-reliance, personal responsibility, poise, public speaking and leadership skills. VYP members have volunteered to be speakers at the evening Assisteens meetings for the kids. If you are interested in volunteering please contact our VYP Civic Chair Jason Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VYP follows a few local organizations to help with promotion of their fundraisers/events and to offer volunteers and fundraising support with such organizations as;
Oak Grove Center for Education, Treatment and the Arts- The mission of Oak Grove is to rebuild the lives of at-risk children and their families through educating, healing, restoring relationships, building character and instilling hope. VYP does 1 room decoration a year for 2 lucky kids and other efforts to support the organization.
Rancho Damacitas / Thessalonika Family Services – Damacitas is designed to be the first stop for children placed in their care. Here they can observe the children and determine what their most important and demanding needs may be. Once this assessment has occurred, then we begin to structure and design a specific plan to meet each child’s needs. Rancho Damacitas assess which of our three programs would offer the child the greatest opportunity for success. They work to provide our children a safe therapeutic environment where they can thrive. VYP gets involved by helping with fundraising efforts, donations and volunteer time.
Project Touch – Project Touch creates a forum that utilizes faith based organizations, non-profits, business and governmental agencies to help restore people’s lives after becoming homeless. VYP helps with fundraising efforts, donations and volunteer time.
