American Friends Service Committee’s Roots for Peace and All Peoples Community Center celebrated the first year build out of the Community Farm! Community members came together on Saturday, May 18, 2019 for a ribbon cutting at the Community Farm.

The day was filled with excitement as Le Ballet Dembaya African Drum & Dance Ensemble performed for attendees. Roots for Peace showcased Youth Artivism and the work of their Food Growers Network members. Community members had the opportunity to share stories of the farm and also tour the mural painted by All Peoples team member and artist Erick Moreno with All Peoples youth. A mural was also done by the Roots for Peace – youth.

American Friends Service Committee’s Roots for Peace and All Peoples Community Center would like to acknowledge and thank Meta Housing Corporation for their partnership in the successful conversion of the vacant lot into an urban agricultural space. We would also like to thank Councilmember Curren D. Price Jr., Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and Assemblymember Reginald Jones-Sawyer for their presence at the Ribbon cutting.

Sabrina Pridgett has overcome incredible odds to successfully graduate high school and attend college this Fall.

Meet Sabrina. Sabrina Pridgett is a 20 year old YouthSource Participant who is the definition of resiliency. She comes from a four member household learning to deal with income instability, lack of academic guidance, and family loss which she has used to build strength to push herself daily. Sabrina Pridgett finished a milestone in her academic goals by completing high school in December 2018 and receiving her diploma from CRCD Academy at All Peoples where she was taking Independent Studies. She sees graduating from CRCD as the first step in the right direction and positioning herself for “the overcoming of future obstacles”.

Sabrina is approaching her one year anniversary as a YouthSource Participant. During her intake process, Sabrina met with YouthSource Assistant Ms. Michelle Watson who instantly recognized her potential for academic success. She is a natural leader and mentor for the rest of her peer group at YouthSource. Through YouthSource, Sabrina has participated in civic engagement such as homeless outreach, community events, and youth lead.

Pictured, YouthSource Participants at Santa Monica College

Sabrina worked her youth internship hours as an Clerical Assistant at All Peoples where she has been a tremendous help with data input and organizing files among other responsibilities. Her next goal is pursuing her undergraduate studies at Santa Monica College. Sabrina fell in love with photography from the first moment she remembers picking up a camera and wants to pursue it professionally. Another passion Sabrina has is cosmetology. She would like to blend both interests into a personal business.

In February 2019, Sabrina completed a Santa Monica College tour with YouthSource Case Manager Adrian Rios, and visited the Cosmetology and Photography department buildings to get familiarized with the campus. They returned in May to meet with academic counselors to put together an action plan for college starting with signing up for Fall classes. Sabrina looks forward to joining the Black Collegians at SMC and remaining active in the pursuit of her personal and community’s success.

This is just the beginning for Sabrina. In five years, she would like to be living independently in her own apartment and continuing her education. Sabrina hopes to one day own her own Photography Studio. For Sabrina, there is no obstacle she can’t overcome with self-determination and seeking out the right resources. She believes that community is the essence of unity and that coming together is what will help the world become a better place. A community motto she strongly believes in is “You have to understand something to make an effective change”.

Pictured, YouthSource Case Manager Adrian Rios with YouthSource Participant Sabrina Pridgett

Youth Programs are available at All Peoples Community Center year-around. Please contact Rios at (213) 747-6357 Ext. 151 or arios@allpeoplescc.org for more information regarding the services available.

All Peoples June Youth of the Month – All Peoples Juniors Volleyball Team

All Peoples Juniors Volleyball Team is being honored as our All Peoples June Youth of the Month!

“Being able to coach this team is such a privilege. I am able to not only see them grow as a team, but as individuals. Most of them started off being shy and scared to play volleyball. As the practices went on, you can see the exact moment they gained the courage and confidence to play. They always try their hardest and always have fun playing. And of course that is the best thing a coach can hope for.” ~ Davida Rosado, All Peoples Juniors Volleyball Coach

Make sure to follow All Peoples Juniors Volleyball Team  on our All Peoples Instagram HERE as we share pictures and stories throughout the month of their experience at All Peoples Community Center on our social media page!

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.
