Compton Youth Build

Compton Youth Build provides marginalized youth in Compton the opportunity to secure their high school diplomas and learn vocational skills in various occupational fields so they can attain an economically sustainable future for themselves, their families and their communities. Our grant of $22,400.00 provides new Mac computers, smart-board and logistics/data analytics software. Approximately 60-75 youth a year will participate in an Information Technology (IT)/Logistics career pathway program specifically designed to train them for careers in high tech. An additional 80 youth a year will use the computers to help satisfy the technology requirements needed to graduate high school. With the addition of this computer equipment, youth will master the technology skills necessary to obtain training certification recognized in the industry, so they can gain white collar, entry level positions earning self-sustainable wages and breaking the cycle of poverty.
