Wrkz, Inc is a mentorship program that serves young adults ages 17 to 30 years old in the inner cities of Los Angeles. Our growing community of mentors, working professionals, and business entities have committed to bridging the gap of opportunity for our participants.
We nurture genuine relationships by being intentional with how we engage with our young adults. Staff, mentors, and mentees sync up once a month to get to know each other. This creates a safe space for us to listen and sift through the interest, skills, and experience of our participants. In conjunction with staff, mentors and mentees work together to create objectives designed to step each mentee through the process of bringing their ideas and careers to life.
We help our participants process their traumatic experiences of living in the trenches of LA. We host activities like focus groups for staff and participants to dialogue using guided questions. We aid in unpacking the challenges of life and pursuing a career. Our focus groups cultivate a space for everyone to feel safe and vulnerable in sharing their experiences.
