Brotherhood Crusade was founded in 1968 with the mission of building an institution that raises funds and resources within the community to give back to the community. Their services include everything from business enrichment to sports to even financial literacy programs. In their youth development programs, each youth enrolled in the program is assessed on an academic, social, and physical level to determine which program is best suited for them. Participants receive free programing and their families even receive free health services.
They are extremely passionate about reducing the gang violence in Los Angeles. In partnership with the LA Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD) they developed programs targeting youth in 8th, 9th, and 10th grade who have a 75% risk factor of joining gangs. Their mentor and me, sports, and arts programs provide ways to engage these youth and increase their academic performance.
We’re excited that Diandra Bremond, Director of Sports Programs, will be joining us from Brotherhood Crusade! Check out Brotherhood Crusade here.
