Youth Civic Engagement

Los Angeles Community Action Team (LACAT) led Youth in a Homeless Drive on Friday, March 15, 2019. Thanks to all of our incredible YouthSource Teens that participated by sorting and handing out clothing and hygiene packets. We would also like to Thank our younger All Peoples Youth who contributed by prepping hygiene packets for distribution.

 

YouthSource Teens continued with civic engagement by lending a helping hand with the All Peoples Food Program. Teens assisted with the pick up, unpacking and sorting of groceries. * **

 

 

Big Sunday Donations

Also, Thank you to David McBride and Big Sunday for the T-shirts and Hoodies for our All Peoples Youth and Youth Coordinators!**

Free Tax Prep LA

Last month our All Peoples Executive Director Saundra Bryant attended a Free Tax Prep LA event with Mayor Garcetti, Los Angeles County Board Supervisor Hilda Solis, LAUSD Board President Monica Garcia, and other organizations across Los Angeles County to remind families about FREE tax assistance and tax credits available to help them this tax season.

Outreach continued on March 15, 2019 as All Peoples offered free tax preparation at the Vernon-Branch Library. All Peoples IRS-Certified Staff assisted 17 community members with tax preparation refunding $19,530.00 during the event. That is an average of $1,148.82 per client!

All Peoples Community Center staff appreciate the hospitality provided by the Vernon-Branch Library. We look forward to continuing our partnership and collaborating on future events for the community of the Vernon-Branch Library.

For more information or to make your Free appointment, please contact Jesse at (213) 747-6357 ext 119 or delacruzjesse@allpeoplescc.org. Make sure to ask about Cal EITC!

All Peoples After-School Program Activities

All Peoples After-School Program offers Youth a chance to let their creativity flow and sharpen their social skills. 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders attended cooking classes provided by Youth Coordinator Davida Rosado. We have a feeling that the best part for the Youth was taste-testing the sweets that they made!

 

All Peoples Middle and High School Youth are learning the technique of silk screen printing with our After-School Teen Youth Coordinator Erick Moreno. The first part of their lesson took place in the computer lab where they mapped out their creative ideas. Following the computer lab, Teens moved into the Art Room and copied their drawings onto fabrics.

Did You Know?

On February 24, 1947, Former President Ronald Reagan (pictured Center) was a guest speaker at our All Peoples Annual Bread and Water Banquet. As President Reagan spoke about the idea of “Americanism”, two slices of bread and cups of water were served for Dinner as reminder of all that we have to be thankful for. Ronald Reagan was a famous actor in Hollywood and had been invited to speak.

 

In 1950, Former President Reagan (shown below) returned to All Peoples to show support of our All Peoples girl youth group called Ebonaries. This girls group was developed to empower young women with leadership development skills. The girls were inspired by his encouragement.
