Sharefest seeks to expand the size and scope of their Youth Leadership Academy for students in LAUSD Continuation High Schools. Sharefest will continue to build out programs at four schools – Avalon (Wilmington), Angel’s Gate (San Pedro), Patton (Harbor City), and Simon Rodia (South Gate) and add a fifth school (either John Hope in South LA or Moneta in Gardena).
Sharefast will hire additional instructors and program managers to expand and integrate school- based programming with activities at new Youth Center and our annual Workday.
"I'm glad that I gained a friendship and mentor from Sharefest. The college prep classes made me realize that college wasn’t a crazy idea and I could do it so I motivated myself to get there."
"After years of working within the South Bay communities I have been continually inspired by the tenacity and determination of local youth to rise above their circumstances. Sharefest comes alongside those youth to empower them with life skills, educational opportunities, mentorship, and leadership training. I truly believe they are becoming leaders of collaborative change within their communities."
