- Field of Interest:
Established in 1992 in response to civil unrest, Community Build, Inc. works to revitalize low-income communities and promote economic development in South Los Angeles. It provides education, training, employment, and supportive services that promote self-sufficiency. Programs provide youth with case management, life skills, tattoo removal, tutoring, college preparation and retention, job training and placement, and recreation and cultural programs.
The Gang Reduction Program provides gang members from Southwest Los Angeles who wish to leave the gang lifestyle with an artist-in-residence program in which they develop a short film that demystifies gang affiliation.
