Help LEGACY Youth go to Los Angeles!
DEADLINE MARCH 12, 2014 !!
Who are we?
The mission of The LEGACY Youth Project provides a positive, healthy, safe, transformative educational experience for at promise youth of the Napa Valley. We implement a culturally responsive curriculum; provide mentorship, life-skills, team-development, tutoring, parent engagement and community based projects to ensure our youth are college/career ready and successful in developing meaningful lives. We are committed to the success of every youth in their positive transformation, their future and leaving a LEGACY.
Where are we going?
We would like to take our LEGACY Youth on our annual educational trip to Los Angeles. "Where would I be without LEGACY" as a current LEGACY member, Arturo stated after his visit to Los Angeles and Homeboy Industries last year. This trip will help our youth in understanding what a college campus looks like, in developing relationships with other organizations that share similar visions, meeting ex-gang members that have transformed their lives, developing their skills in arts and as young men and for many it will be their first time in Los Angeles!
What will we do?
This is an educational field trip and we are excited to participate in the following areas:
College/Career Exploration: We will be visiting and having an instructional tour of the UCLA University campus. The college tour would allow the youth to get a feel of what a university campus looks and feels like.
Life Skills Development: We will be spending a full day at Homeboy Industries starting off with breakfast at HomeGirl cafÃ©. Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention center in the United States that offer various services to the community, click here for more information on Homeboy Industries. Our youth will be immersed at Homeboy Industries for a full day of activities where we will engage with Homeboy Industries Drug and Alcohol Counselor and Artist Fabian Debora doing some art work and then working with Homeboy Industries Associate Executive Director Hector Verdugo doing a young men development workshop.
Relationships, Team Building/Unity: We will be spending an afternoon on Venice Beach for team-building activities and a bit of relaxation.
