The Inner City Kitchen is a culinary program whose main goal is to alleviate low self-esteem due to food related disorders among inner city youth, young adults and families in LA County. Together We Rise is comprised of motivated young adults whose vision is to improve the lives of foster children who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. The Reading Writing It’s Exciting program’s purpose is to mentor 2nd graders in the Los Angeles area who need extra help in writing and reading. Students who participate in this program have achieved great success and continue to excel in school.
