    Chicanos Por La Causa – Youth Refugee Mentoring

    Mentors serve as friends, role models and consistent sources of support by helping their mentee develop and reach their personal, academic and career goals. Most importantly, they build a fun, trusting, one-on-one relationship with their mentee. This is an opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a young adult. Building a relationship with their mentee can be a slow process and mentors should be open to guidance, support, and creativity as they establish their relationship.

    HeartBEATS

    HeartBEATS is a youth-led organization dedicated to creating meaningful connections between the Phoenix refugee community and our volunteers through music programs and activities. We hope that these shared musical experiences will bring joy and healing and help to build bridges of understanding and expand the cultural and arts education for all. We believe that music has the unique ability to form bonds among all kinds of people regardless of age, nationality, or gender and know that it does not require a common language or skill set to be shared and enjoyed. HeartBEATS is looking for donations for the music starter kits that are given to our new neighbors on the Welcome to America Project deliveries. These music starter kits have items such as handheld jingle bells, tambourines, egg shakers, and rhythm sticks, and they are an easy and affordable way to share music across all communities, whether that be just within the families or with the volunteers as they help with deliveries.
