Long Beach BLAST’s (Better Learning for All Students Today)

Long Beach BLAST’s (Better Learning for All Students Today) mission is to improve academic and personal success for youth through collaboration and innovative approaches to mentoring and learning.

BLAST focuses on youth who are the most “at-risk” for dropping out of school because they face homelessness, pressure from gangs, lack of parental involvement and violence. BLAST provides youth with access to credit recovery classes, workforce development training, leadership development, college preparedness workshops and career guest speakers.
