Lost Angels Children’s Project’s (LACP) mission is to provide low-income and at-risk youth with a safe, educational after-school program that promotes critical thinking and team building through vocational skills training in classic car restoration and art.
LACP provides hands-on learning through a unique educational experience that prevents joblessness and homelessness, and promotes self-confidence, self-sufficiency and self-worth for youth. Problem solving and team building are essential components in the workshops, as well as learning a code of conduct that teaches each student the principles of accountability, manners, respect and gratitude.
“The shop just helps me get away from stuff and I've met so many great people there, I met my best-friend Eli there and so many more people. Aaron jokes a lot but also teaches us a lot, not just about welding or cars he teaches us so much more about life. It's a fun, welcoming caring place to be.”
“Our whole goal is to offer somewhere positive and safe where they can come and learn and be a part ofsomething different. Kids come in not knowing anything about cars. We start from zero, how to read atape measure, nuts and bolts, just basic safety and tools, then we simply take those skills to an actualclassic car.”
