GROWTH Foundation is best known for its dynamic, multifaceted after school program where teenagers could go for safety, friendship, and overall support. To carry out GROWTH’s charitable mission of helping troubled kids graduate high school, stay away from drugs and gangs, and heal the scars from abuse, a dedicated team of volunteers provided tutoring and test preparation assistance; taught classes including cooking, music, drama and art; and generated opportunities for volunteer work, internships and jobs.
GROWTH offered round the clock support to participants and lead them in numerous activities in an effort to connect with their community. GROWTH spearheaded projects such as Care for the Canyon, and P.U.P., and participated in enriching programs including Girl Scouting, NBA’s Read to Achieve, Police Activities League, Hope for the Homeless and the Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Hollywood.
In recognition of its efforts and accomplishments, GROWTH Foundation has been awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for multiple volunteer projects across Los Angeles, as well as numerous Certificates of Appreciation and decorative scrolls by the Mayor of Los Angeles, City Council District 4, the Business and Professional Women of Hollywood, the Hollywood Coordinating Council, and other community based organizations.
