AV C.U.F. is a volunteer organization. Our volunteers are screened and must obtain a background check prior to working with the organization. Once cleared by the DOJ background check, the volunteers must attend a mandatory orientation on the protocols of AV C.U.F.   This training includes:

•          De escalation techniques

•          Mandated Reporting

•          First Aid / CPR Certification Required

•          Appropriate Mentor/ Mentee Interactions

•          Special Needs Training

•          Autism Awareness

Our workshops are conducted by our volunteer facilitators. The facilitators are current college students.  We believe this will help bridge the gap between our older mentors and allow the youth to better understand and relate to the curriculum.

Antelope Valley Community Uplift Foundation

We lead by example!

We talk the talk and walk the walk!

We say what we mean and mean what we say!

Our job starts with our youth: understanding what our youth needs, so we can present options that make sense for all.
