THE STORY:

Harry Grammer | New Earth


At 16, Harry Grammer was arrested and sentenced to five years on juvenile probation. After turning his life around, Grammer founded New Earth in 2004. The nonprofit helps incarcerated, foster and at-risk youth in Los Angeles transform their lives through arts-based programs. Grammer’s team brings workshops to detention centers seven days a week and offers free education, counseling, vocational training, transportation and meals at its youth center in L.A. The group works with about 500 young people every week.

Letter from Harry Grammer (HG)

It is an honor to be named a CNN Hero and a privilege to work with hundreds of striving youth every day! Our youth are resilient, smart, and creative. These young people just need a little support in order to make them unstoppable in carrying out their dreams! I spent five years of my youth on juvenile probation, and I understand the challenges youth in juvenile systems face. I started New Earth because I saw a need for a program that gives youth a voice; we opened the New Earth Arts and Leadership Center two years ago because we saw too many kids released from incarceration without the adequate support they needed to change their lives.  Now, we are raising funds that will support the launch of our second “Youth Community Re-entry Center” in Gardena, CA this August! The New Earth Arts & Leadership Campus will provide additional probation youth and “in-risk” youth with the educational, vocational, and clinical services they need to reentry the community and succeed after system involvement.   


Your donation helps our youth become #UNSTOPPABLE

Sincerely,

Harry ‘HG” Grammer
