Hello, thank you for your interest in the Imagine LA Ambassador Program!
We need to recruit both families and mentors to make our model work. The Imagine LA Ambassadors program empowers our volunteers and families to claim their narratives through public speaking training and skills (at no cost to them), educates the broader public about the current state of homelessness in Los Angeles, and engages a wide cross-section of Angelinos in Imagine LA’s mission to break the cycle of family homelessness and poverty through the power of mentorship.
Trained Ambassadors then join Imagine LA staff at community events and prospective family meetings to share their story with audiences several times over the course of one year. Their presence opens up dialogue about their personal experience and growth in our program, and encourage others to consider joining the Imagine LA family. Ambassadors also work with Imagine LA to create a digital version of their narrative to be featured on our website and social media and those of community partners like United Way’s Everyone In campaign.
