Legacy LA’s mission is to make positive interventions in the lives of young people by offering alternatives to gangs and violence. Youth are connected to a case manager and a menu of positive youth development services.
“Legacy LA has given me many opportunities to grow into the leader that I am today.”
"At Legacy LA we believe that personal and community transformation go hand in hand. We believe that community transformation will only occur if we focus on helping youth reach their full potential. Our work is to inspire youth to Dream Big and believe in their capacity to achieve their dreams.”
