Kid City

By Reverb

Anne Hawthorne, Executive Director of the Los Angeles United Methodist Urban Foundation joins us along with Alma and Ricardo, participants in Kid City.

"Kid City is a welcoming community where youth and young adults develop leadership, agency, and intellectual curiosity, and are encouraged to be their best and pursue their dreams. Kid City offers leadership, culture and arts, college access, and college completion programs. Most participants are first generation college or college-bound students from very low income families living in central and south Los Angeles. The program is offered at no or low cost after-school and during school breaks, and all kids and families contribute through service and donations."
