Believing that a community’s greatest asset is its youth, Sharefest is committed to mentoring youth to reach their fullest potentials. With the right cultivation of values, critical thinking skills, and opportunities, today’s youth are empowered to be tomorrow’s leaders who bring solutions and positive change their communities need. Education budget cuts across the state have created a need for additional academic programming to help today’s youth succeed in school and beyond.
Sharefest’s Youth Development Academy strives to help meet this need through school-based, center-based, and summer programs offering academic and leadership skill-development opportunities to underserved middle and high school students throughout Los Angeles County.
