Unveiling “Destiny’s Child”
As a central member of the p:ear team, the Kitchen Coordinator will work collaboratively with leadership and program staff to offer 2 healthy, nutritious meals per day. p:ear’s food program is the hub for shared meals that provide homeless young people with the opportunity to create and share food with other students, staff and volunteers and instills a sense of belonging while providing an experience for them to know they are cared for, appreciated, and worthy of being nurtured.
I bet you have.
p:ear Bike Works is looking for a dynamic individual to manage, grow and help develop our social purpose enterprise community bike shop. In partnership with the Rosewood Initiative, p:ear Bike Works will help support Portland’s Eastside communities, providing low cost, low barrier access to bike education, repair and sales of refurbished bicycles and parts. Our shop is located within the Rosewood Initiative building at 16126 SE Stark St.
p:ear youth chose to work for over 4 months to create this homage to this greatest American athlete of the last 40 years to honor sheer power, as well as her continued fight against body shaming, racism and sexism all while breaking records and dominating the tennis world.
p:ear utilizes group mural making for the technical, artistic skills and team-building opportunities that these projects provide for our homeless youth. Youth who have never painted before are able to find success. For example, a p:ear youth named Destiny connected immediately with this Serena mural project and decided to dedicate time to it every day. Destiny’s commitment and joy over realizing that they had the ability to make a mural of this scope has been a thrill to watch and their commitment to the mural is the reason we have dubbed this mural “Destiny’s Child.”
We look forward to seeing you at City Hall for the unveiling! #pearyouth
