opportunitiesCreate Now finds unique opportunities for youth that we continually promote through our vast network of 100+ partner youth agencies in Southern California, with an extended outreach of 1,000 shelters, group homes, rehab centers and other youth agencies in the region. We connect youth in need with a wide variety of internships, jobs, scholarships, auditions, workshops and career guidance.

We also promote arts competitions in music, video, writing and the visual arts. Some of these notices are aimed at particular groups, such as Latino youth, homeless youngsters, African-American students, or foster kids.

For example, Create Now promoted a Youth Workforce Training Certificate Program at Children’s Institute, as well as family therapy for participants on a TV show, workshops for youth who want to start a nonprofit organization, and competitions in poetry, singing, art, photography, heritage posters and essays, as well as free backpacks with school supplies. Our notices target tens of thousands of vulnerable youth.

We are grateful to all of our partners for bringing these great opportunities to the most troubled children in our community. If you have any opportunities that you would like us to share, please call (213) 747-2777 or send an email to: giving@createnow.org.
