A new event series sponsored by The People's Fleet invites nonprofits to share their work with the community. First up, Stoked Mentoring.
We've long been fans of The People's Fleet, a program sponsored by Ford that puts cars into the hands of worthy nonprofits across the city. As part of the program's presence here in L.A., The People's Fleet is hosting a series of events that bring local nonprofits together with the community. GOOD LA is happy to co-sponsor these four gatherings, which will each feature a speaker and opportunities for action.
The first event, coming up on Tuesday, July 19, features Stoked Mentoring, a local group that uses action sports to engage with at-risk youth. Actor and standup comedian Jonathan Drubner will be the keynote speaker, and there will be a screening of a short documentary about mentoring in Los Angeles. Want to support Stoked Mentoring right now? Go here to help them win $5000 from Ford to fund a series of "surf mentoring" sessions for inner-city kids.
