South LA is who we be.
We the Disney Team proudly serve in South Los Angeles at Normandie Avenue Elementary and 42nd Avenue Elementary. Since October 2009, every Monday through Thursday, we serve in a classroom as tutors and mentors in the mornings and run an afterschool program in the afternoon until the last student is picked up. To better serve our schools, we provide whole school support by planning events, assemblies and activities for all students to participate in. We have put on lunch time enrichment activities that engage students in mind teasers and puzzles and a Variety Show showcasing students' talents for their friends and families. These are just a few examples of many events that our team has put on for this school. There are a few weeks left of school and we want to END IT WITH A BANG!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!
