Our Mission.


We believe every child has the right to dream.

At 16 Youth Activities League in many of the most challenged neighborhoods in Los Angeles County, we passionately and proudly serve our youth, their families, and their communities.

We lead. We empower. We inspire.

We lead with dedicated Deputies, Mentors, Coaches, Counselors and Volunteers at our Youth Activities League; celebrating academics, sports, leadership, and the arts.

We empower our youth to know there is a path – and we help them get on a path to an educated, ethical and productive life.

We inspire our youth through experiences to have a confidence and will to make an extraordinary difference in the world.

We respect and admire the uniqueness and story of each and every child.
