BACK-TO-SCHOOL BACKPACK GIVEAWAY AUGUST 17TH, 2019 at Noon...
NO CHILD DESERVES TO BE LEFT BEHIND...
We are determined to equip every child in Watts Housing Projects to confidently return to school this year!
School begins for LAUSD on August 20th. Many kids are having to return to a high degree of negative peer-pressure, cruel social media posts and personal bullying. At Youth Mentoring we strive to empower the kids with confidence, educational training and practical life lessons. Yet, we also want to equip them with a brand new backpack full of school supplies that most would not have access to otherwise! No sign-up required just show up to volunteer!
Location: Watts Empowerment Center

RED EYE: SYDNEY...
We just returned from an inspiring time with some of our Red Eye: SYDNEY Team.

They are doing phenomenal work with their Australian flair, but in succinct unity with our other global chapters in London and Paris and our chapters in LA, NYC and Vegas.

SKID ROW STRONGMAN COMPETITION...
Whenever we started doing the Mother's Day Makeovers the men started asking what we would do for them! Our Annual Skid Row (Father’s Day) Strongman Competition is something like you have NEVER experienced!! From the Massive Tire Toss, Cement Block Relay, Bench Press Competition, Sledge Hammer Smashing to the renowned TRUCK PULLING CONTEST.
CLICK HERE to check out a video from a past SKID ROW STRONGMAN COMPETITION!
MOTHER'S DAY MAKEOVERS...
Every Mother’s Day we gather on Skid Row for one of the MOST LOVED HUMANITARIAN EVENTS of the WHOLE YEAR. We head to Skid Row to do HAIR STYLING, MAKE-UP, NAILS, WARDROBE MAKEOVER, FEET WASHING, MASSAGES, EMPOWERING PHOTOSHOOT with PRINT OUTS, RED CARPET and of course COSMETIC SWAG BAGS for these AMAZING women that live on Heroin Alley! The photo wall reads, "I AM..." and the mothers have many options of signs to hold saying "LOVED", "BEAUTIFUL", "STRONG", "ADORED", "COURAGEOUS", “MOM” and much more.
CHECK OUT A VIDEO from another year's Mother's Day Makeover event!
