LA CAUSA YouthBuild's Executive Director
I am proud to be part of an organization that was founded with the vision to help youth that were unable to make it through the traditional high school system due to the disparities and life challenges they have faced. The youth we serve often face challenges that are outside of their control, including but not limited to: broken homes, low income households, lack of access to resources, homelessness, foster youth, lack of acceptance for identifying as LGBTQ+, and transitioning from the juvenile justice systems.
Our organization aims to provide a safe space for youth of all backgrounds, where they can focus on a second chance to succeed through their high school education, and pursuing either a vocational career pathway and/or a post-secondary education. Our goal is to make sure that all youth that enter our space, leave feeling empowered to find solutions to the injustices they face in their communities.
As the Executive Director, I know that our work brings hope and serves as the starting point of positive transformation for our youth. The work we do at LA CAUSA is fueled by the heart and passion of our team, our partnerships, and all of our supporters. LA CAUSA makes a difference in the lives of all the youth that come through our doors. LA CAUSA lives on.
