In 1956 All Peoples Church became a host for a refugee family from Germany.  Meet Mrs. Ericka Wehrberg, an escapee from Estonia Germany. She has three girls 15, 13, and 7 and a four year old boy. Since 1942, her family has been resided in six different refugee camps.  Her dossier read:

She has had difficulty in caring for her children in providing a decent place to live. Although she is interested in textile or domestic work she cannot find employment. She lives on welfare assistance or charity and it is not enough to properly care for four children. She wants to emigrate to the U.S. to give her children a better chance in life then she has had for herself. 

She is not the type of person who enjoys unemployment and would rather be working hard, than sitting around all day wondering where the next meal is coming from. She has no living relatives in Germany or anywhere.

All Peoples Church welcomed Mrs. Wehrberg and her four children to Los Angeles as refugees. An apartment was provided and employment. Members collected clothing, home furnishing, food and all the items a family would need to resettle in the states.

All Peoples Christian Church and Community Center has always had a heart for refugees and immigrants. Today that heart is demonstrated in our partnership with Central American Resource Center (CARECEN). We host immigrant’s rights workshops, assistance with DACA renewals, and U –Visas. Our goal is to ensure that today all people who are looking to provide their children a better chance in life then they have for themselves are supported in their efforts.

Meet Kevin. Kevin, 25, attended All Peoples After-school “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Programming throughout his childhood. As a former YouthSource participate, Kevin was awarded the opportunity to internship at J2 Global, a tech company based in Los Angeles. Kevin describes the internship that is bringing him one step closer to his dreams:

“At J2, I assisted my supervisor in installing software, setting up monitors, and performing other IT duties. The skills required was patience with learning new computer information since it is a lot of material to soak in. I also needed to use my initiative to gain more knowledge about technology and computers.

Dylan was my mentor. He is a genius when it comes to computers. He was very patient with me and took the time to answer all my questions and teach me everything step by step. [During the internship] I assisted Dylan in fixing computer issues such as uninstalling or installing software or imaging computers. My goal is to get my Associates in Photography or English, my Bachelors in Political science, and my Masters in Public Administration. I want to become CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) of Disney or a huge company some day. I also want to buy my first house in 5 years. At J2, I met many great people with different skills, and I learned more about computers than I expected to.”

A Message from our Executive Director Saundra Bryant:

The All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program currently serves approximately 279 students ranging from 1st – 12th grade. Services are offered onsite at All Peoples as well as Dunbar Village, Adams and Central, Casa Figueroa and Washington 702. All program locations operate Monday through Friday from 2:30 pm – 6:30 pm.

The structure of our All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program allows ample time throughout the week for healthy snacks, academic assistance, recreational activities, and social development. Student performance throughout the year is monitored by collecting report cards and giving students a pre and post-test in math and reading using the STAR assessment program.

Based on reports, 67.5% of our students showed an increase in their reading level by minimum of a full point and 23.7% of the students maintained the same reading level. In math, 77.6% of our students showed an increase in their math level and 15.7% maintained the same math level. Staff’s main focus is to consistently work with students to improve in the areas in which they are lacking academically. Staff maintains a constant and close relationship with the school, teachers, and parents in order to help improve the student’s academic performance.

For 2019, we will start highlighting our All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow Leaders” Program by featuring a “Youth of the Month” on our website. The Youth recognized for the Month will showcase their experience in the All Peoples After-School “Tomorrow’s Leaders” Program by posting pictures and stories on our All Peoples Instagram Page using hashtag #TomorrowsLeaders. We encourage you to support our Youth by following them on Instagram as we empower them to be the change that they want to see in their schools and community.
