In honor to celebrate the end of the year and give back to our local community, several members of the B Local Los Angeles Board of Directors teamed up with Defy Ventures to support change this holiday season.
The Board attended a full day Business Coaching Day (BCD) workshop at California State Prison, Los Angeles County, Lancaster. Business Coaching Days (BCDs) are great ways to meet like-minded volunteers and many talented, ambitious Entrepreneurs in Training (EITs). We helped provide one-on-one career coaching and business planning activities, icebreakers and powerful empathy-building activities. BCDs support employment readiness and entrepreneurship skills and, through conversations and connections with our volunteers, enhance EITs’ self-esteem, ambition, and sense of hope that is critical to their transformational journey.
