Results: Final Report

Thanks to the support of the GO community, CleanSlate was able to expand their youth leadership and empowerment services. The mission of CleanSlate is to help LA youth recover from gang and community violence through therapy and peer support. Funds helped expand the outreach of the youth leadership program in the Fairfax neighborhood of Los Angeles. CleanSlate was able to serve 55 more youth as a result of their GO grant. Youth were able to partake in peer support discussions, cultural outings, and meditation. The youth have benefited in extraordinary ways. One youth reflected on his participation noting that he now pays better attention to his relationships, and how that matters in the world; now he even has the goal of finishing his GED and going to college.
