BENEFITING: FIVE POINTS YOUTH FOUNDATION
Support our Los Angeles sustainable programs that include Community Gardens, Renewable Energy Education, free Clean Energy Vocational Training, At Risk youth and adult programs and Health & Wellness Campaigns. www.fivepointsyouthfoundation.org
We create our own At Risk Youth and Adult programs, create community gardens, facilitate turn key Renewable Education and Vocational Training and offer them free to other local Community Organizations.
Our coordination of Fundraising and National Sustainable & Renewable Energy Programs is done by our program: Power Of Green L.A. www.powerofgreenla.com
All over American Urban Community Organizations needs are growing and grants are shrinking. Electric Bills, Lack of Vocational Training staff, free programs and much more is needed. The Orgs listed below have created a free "suitcase" program that any organization can implement to start training people in Renewable Energy. It's organized so that even someone who knows nothing about the subject can deliver it. The program also offers support in delivering the program virtually, including skyped "Solar Generator Building" and more.
THEY NEED YOUR HELP to have on site visits from people from Engineers Without Borders, Power Of Green L.A. and others, as well as, raise funds or barter for materials. Example: A 2000 watt portable Solar Generator can be built for less than $400! This in form of a U.S. City "quick tour" of orgs in major cities.
Example of need: A birthing clinic in America where the Electrical grid is faulty and the short term power outages are weekly! - A free clinic in Los Angeles that can barely afford their electric bill. - A 30 year old vocational training center in Chicago, closing due to lack of funds to re-train electricians back into the workforce.
This also enables more Americans to have Community Emergency Response Electricity which is crucial during disasters. But let's face it. Urban America is facing an "crisis" type scenario even without Mother Nature.
We are all Volunteers working around the clock to implement these programs. Sometimes we need to spend more time in our own backyard, even though the need may seem greater abroad. We do this everyday with great success in a few cities, L.A. especially. Most of our students, who's life savings don't equal more than $350, can buy equipment for half that and take their refrigerator out of the electric bill. It's not much, but every little bit helps. Many times we raise donations for low/no income from equipment vendors.
This is not reserved for just energy, we are a group of non-profits dedicated to enhancing Health and Wellness for everyone. We also create Community Gardens and teach how to live more sustainably.
Here are the head orgs for programs and implementation.
