Girls Club of Los Angeles’ (GCLA)

Girls Club of Los Angeles’ (GCLA) mission is to enrich the lives of low-income children, youth and families through early education, youth development and community outreach in South Los Angeles.

GCLA’s Project LEAYD (Leaders in Enrichment of Adolescent and Youth Development) strengthens and promotes positive, healthy lifestyles and encourages responsible decision-making among youth. The goal is to move youth from survival mode to becoming advocates who will seek out support services for themselves, their families and others.
