Youth Program

Youth are our Focus and Future

In LA County 1:6 Youth are "Disconnected "from education and employment

After School Club

Our after-school club is operated from our Mariposa Community Home

Students in grades 1-4 join us after school for

  • homework help,
  • academic skill building, and
  • fun enrichment activities like Lego Robotics (hosted by Palmdale Aerospace Academy’s award-winning robotics team Griffyingear).

Youth Sports Camps

Our Youth Sports Camps are operated at various school sites and parks in the Antelope Valley.

We are advocates and part of the Play Equity movement sponsored by the LA84 Foundation. Sports clinics offered based on seasons are basketball, flag football, volleyball, soccer, and baseball. Open to youth ages 6-14.

Youth AI Learning Program

LA County DMH Transforming LA Pilot
(Youth Artificial Intelligence Learning Program)

We provide education on the technical and ethical aspects of AI, while allowing youth ages 16-25 to explore various careers to see the likely impact of AI on their chosen career field. Youth build confidence, social skills, leadership, public speaking, mental health strategies and learn to collaborate. Each cohort ends with a pitch showcase where youth share their passion project and how AI can be used to benefit the community. Youth earn a stipend during this program which is sponsored by LA County Department of Mental Health.

Youth Employment Programs

Equity and Justice Advocacy

We provide a safe space and nurturing learning environment where youth are free to explore their feelings, range of emotions, step into leadership and work with mentors to focus their energy on creative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. Our youth social justice group meets quarterly. 

Success Story

We empower youth to pursue not only jobs but their passions and dream. We are so proud of our employment program youth who never give up on themselves and believe all things are possible.
