Leadership Development Program for Youth
Young people who participate in organized music, sports and recreation…
• Do better in school
• Have better interpersonal skills
• Are more team-oriented
• Are generally healthier
Kids need teachers, coaches and mentors to help them aim high, see opportunities for future growth and provide social support. PAT helps them connect with these supporters.
Activities include the Music Production Academy, GOALS, as well as intramural sports leagues and health + wellness activities. Our partners schools are Animo Leadership, Animo South LA, and Animo Jackie Robinson high schools of Green Dot Public Schools.
The program is made possible by a generous bequest to the California Community Foundation from an anonymous donor. More than anything, she wanted her gift to help people create a better future for themselves and others.
