BENEFITING: Legacy La Youth Development Corporation
63% of youth in the Ramona Gardes community drop out of high school. Since 2007, Legacy LA is a community based non-profit organization focused on youth development. Our mission is to make positive interventions in the lives of young people by offering alternatives to gangs and violence. We build youth's capacity to reach their full potential and equip them with the tools to transform their lives and their community. We are located in the East Los Angeles community of Boyle Heights and we serve youth living in Ramona Gardens and the surrounding neighborhoods.
