On May 6, 2014, GiveLocalNow, along with community partners will embark on a 24-hour online giving challenge for local nonprofits. Starting at Midnight on May 6th, a call to action will be sent throughout or community to log in and give to the nonprofit of their choice.
What is the BIG Day of Giving? It is amazing opportunity to raise unrestricted dollars that will be boosted by a pool of matching dollars!
Our funds will be used to increase the number of seats on our GED Academy from 10 seats to 25 seats, to purchase GED guides for students/tutors, pay the State fee which is $120-$200 pp (depending on the testing center), and provide the supportive services necessary to complete the test. For more information (click here).
We will also be able to take an additional 20 youth/young adults to Camp Old Navy (job readiness activity).
For questions call Lisa Miller at (916) 496-7764.
Our mission is to increase the level of achievement of high risk youth and young adults, improve their economic status and contribute to the region’s economy by providing adult mentoring, GED preparation and supports that will help them launch and progress in a career and/or post-secondary education.
