In celebration of Building a Lifetime of Options and Opportunities for Men’s (BLOOM) one-year anniversary, the California Community Foundation (CCF) will host a community town hall event at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
The community is invited to join BLOOM, an initiative of CCF, for an important discussion on the future of black male youth in South Los Angeles. BLOOM is a five-year, $5 million grantmaking initiative focused on black male youth between 14-18 years of age in South Los Angeles who have been involved with the Los Angeles County probation system. By 2017, BLOOM seeks to help 1,200 black male youth complete high school, as well as find employment resulting in taxable income for 1,000 young black men (18 and older).
Special guests include BLOOM spokesperson actor Larenz Tate and others to be named. Los Angeles Trade Tech College is located at 1937 S. Grand Ave, North Tent, Los Angeles, 90015. The BLOOM Town Hall Meeting is free and open to the public. For more information visit http://iamBLOOM.com.
