YA Westside, L.A. is the student support team for Young Angels of America. The team is made up of middle and high school students who are fundraising for YA Dance, YA Comedy, YA Leadership, and Watts Prom. They have raised thousands of dollars off line at student events they produce, and are now taking their efforts to Crowdrise. Young Angels teaches fundraising and production skills so students can support causes they believe in, and import activities that have been cut from their budget. The YA leadership skill set leads to financial independence and college for both high-income and high-need students.
