Join YOL for a day of volunteering, connecting, and more at LA Mission in Los Angeles, CA on December 6, 2019.
Our impactful single-day YOL Showcase experience offers you and your colleagues an opportunity to shed stress, have fun, and give back to an incredible organization. Through YOL’s mindfulness-based service program, everyone will learn strategies they can take back to the workplace to increase motivation and enhance performance!
When we welcome you at Los Angeles Mission, a homelessness services provider, we’ll give you an immersive introduction to Mindful Service™, YOL’s approach to hands-on, socially responsible volunteer engagement, then dive right into a project. During this service experience, you’ll have a chance to practice new self-regulation and self-compassion skills, build team cohesion, and challenge yourself to engage in a new level of mindfulness in action.
We’ll break for a delicious, organic lunch and connect with LA Mission’s Sheila Moweta to learn more about the organization’s mission and impact in the community before engaging in a mind-body practice designed to support wellbeing. We’ll close the day with a seriously inspirational connection exercise designed to deepen trust, strengthen compassion, and fortify teamwork.
Our methods are tried and true. YOL participants consistently report that they feel more able to create positive change in themselves, in the world, and in the workplace. You’ll head home with a taste of this potential and a new set of strategies for staying responsive and refreshed—strategies that you can practice at home and with your team when you need to move from stressed to personal best.
Don’t miss this transformative experience! The $98 per-person cost includes lunch and a donation to Los Angeles Mission. Want to come with friends or coworkers? Register three of your people and the fourth person attends for free!
