Event Details

A community celebration and fundraising event to help keep the Pico Youth and Family Center's doors open! 

Through a 1000 people march for peace, the PYFC was born. Since 2002 the PYFC has transformed the lives of hundreds of youth and created real progress in the community. Many PYFC youth have earned advanced college degrees, contributed 80 original songs encompassed in four CD compilations and have gained employment through PYFC staff support. In contrast to the failed police and prison approach to at risk youth, the PYFC is an example that an investment in after school programs can succeed in reducing youth gang involvement and violence.

To continue our good work we need the community’s support. We need to raise $7,000 to help fund the various programs and services at PYFC. Please help us keep our doors open for the next ten years and provide our youth the support they deserve.

Organizer

Pico Youth and Family Center

Pico Youth & Family Center (PYFC), is a non-profit organization in Santa Monica committed to preventing youth violence. Through various services and caring staff support we bring hope to the lives of youth. We serve hundreds of youth annually, ages 16-24 who are most at risk, through case management, counseling, tutoring, job readiness training, leadership development, music, art and computer training. The PYFC is a positive alternative to the streets for many of Santa Monica’s youth and young adults who seek guidance, support and service.

Our Mission is to equip disenfranchised youth and their families with the leadership and advocacy skills needed to strengthen and sustain the community in which they live. To promote peace, unity, and social justice by modeling cooperation and advancing educational and economic opportunity  Through creative programs we will work to instill hope in our youth by engaging them in creating solutions to our community’s problems.

Studies have shown that youth violence prevention programs are most effective in the after school and evening hours. We need your help to keep the doors of educational and economic opportunity open for future generations.

“Invest in your future, support our youth”
