Koreatown Youth & Community Center

Image_202009301337

Quick Overview: Join the Koreatown Youth and Community Center (KYCC) to care for our young trees, beautify our neighborhoods and leave a legacy for the future. We can't do it alone and need your help in cultivating a more green Los Angeles - learn what it takes to care for a tree and watch it grow for decades to come! Volunteers will help maintain existing street trees to ensure that they are watered, mulched, and restaked if needed. It's giving the care the trees need to survive after they have been planted. Tree care is just as, if not more, important as tree planting and we'd love to have volunteers join us for this experience.

Event Information:

Location: 421 S Gramercy Pl. Los Angeles, CA 90020

Date: Saturday, October 30, 2021

Time: 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

*Join KYCC staff in a tree-care-friendly costume. The best costume will be recognized!

Impact: Did you know?

Trees absorb enough CO, on each acre, over a years time, to equal the amount you produce when you drive your car 26,000 miles. Trees increase ground water recharge that is significantly reduced by paving.

Strategically placed trees can be as effective as other energy saving home improvements, such as insulation and the installation of weather-tight windows and doors. Trees can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Trees can help cool the "heat island" effect in our inner cities. These islands result from storage of thermal energy in concrete, steel and asphalt. Heat islands are 3 to 10 degrees warmer than the surrounding countryside.

Healthy trees can add up to 15 percent to residential property value.

Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: Volunteers will work in small teams to perform tree maintenance and care duties to beautify our communities and build a healthier Los Angeles for everyone. This is a great opportunity for groups and those wanting to spend their morning giving back to the community.

Requirements: Youth under the age of 18 MUST bring a signed parent consent (provided upon signup).

Please be sure to wear a mask, wear closed-toed shoes, bring a water bottle and be ready to work!

Additional Information: All participants MUST register with KYCC before the event in addition to signing up via this website. You will receive further instructions on how to complete registration with KYCC once you've signed up through this website. Please note, space is LIMITED. Questions?

Mission Statement

The mission of the Koreatown Youth and Community Center, Inc. (KYCC) is to serve the evolving needs of the Korean American population in the greater Los Angeles Area as well as the multi-ethnic Koreatown community. KYCC's programs and services are directed toward recently immigrated, economically disadvantaged youth and families, and to promote community socio-economic empowerment.

Description

The Koreatown Youth and Community Center was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting low-income and recently immigrated children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. Our volunteer opportunities range from short-to-long term, unskilled to skilled, for youth and adults, and ranging from everything from community research to tutoring to tree planting. Our work isn't possible without the support of volunteers, so if you're interested please don't hesitate to reach out to get started or learn more!
