Anthony was introduced to our Pacoima YouthSource Center by case manager Sergio Ramos. During his first visit, he noticed the site offered a spoken word class.
“The spoken word class gave me an outlet for stress and it is a form of relaxation,” recalls Anthony. “Some people go to the gym, go to the library or go to the movies. My stress reliever is music and expressing my feelings on paper.”
He is now a regular participant in a number of offerings at the center, including the vocational training we offer through our LA Reconnections Career Academy program.
