Submission Instructions: The Greater Cleveland YWCA is seeking 15-25 reliable, talented, and welcoming volunteers to assist with a powerful breakfast event called The Circle on September 14, 2016. To participate as a volunteer, please contact Twyla Turner at tturner@ywcaofcleveland.org.

By volunteering with The Circle, you can support YWCA Greater Cleveland‘s Nurturing Independence and Aspirations (NIA) program, a trauma-informed system of care focused on helping young adults on the path to self-sufficiency. NIA supports young adults with housing, education, employment, health, permanence, and social engagement.

YWCA’s Independence Place is a 23-unit permanent supportive housing project for formerly homeless youth ages 18-24, many of whom came from the foster care system. All tenants have been homeless and now have access to the NIA program’s supportive services.

The breakfast will include a compelling keynote speaker: Ilah Adkins, a Cleveland lawyer, activist, YWCA Woman of Professional Excellence, and former foster care youth. In addition to Ms.Adkins, women who have been empowered by NIA and Independence Place will also be sharing their stories.

As a volunteer you have the opportunity to lend a hand while learning more about YWCA Greater Cleveland’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women and join together to make a significant impact on the lives of homeless young people in our region.
