FOOD – FUN – CONNECTIONS – GAMES – ART ACTIVITIES – EMPOWERMENT

Our Youth Empowerment Event was held at East L.A. YAL at the City Terrace Park. Students from the University of Utah dedicated their time to speak to our youth of their experiences getting to college and the lifestyle that they live now.  There were over 80 YAL participants combined from Norwalk, East L.A, South L.A, Temple, Century, and Compton. The youth was separated into large groups and played ice breaker games so the kids could interact and help them get out of the shell. Ending with all the participants eating as a group from food that was donated and that was made with the help of the Norwalk YAL youth.

A big thank you to our SYF Event Coordinators: Deputy Valenzuela and Jamielyn Flores
