CITY101 (A Crash Course on Life in Our Cities) prepares teens for life as engaged, responsible local residents through life skills and civic engagement workshops. 
100% of participants in our CITY101 program last Spring agreed that the experience was practical and would help them navigate adult life in their community.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach and other local institutions want us to provide this program in the next school year, but we need $2,500 to cover associated expenses so we can meet high demand! With your help, we can prepare more local youth for adulthood.
