Bresee Foundation offers excellent after-school programs and family services in a safe, nurturing environment, equipping young people to pursue their education, achieve their full potential, and serve their community. Our goal is to cultivate character driven, creative, college bound leaders that can continue the cycle of transformation in their neighborhoods.
The Bresee Foundation is a nonprofit community center that is a source of faith, hope, and service to low-income youth, adults, and families in central Los Angeles. We serve nearly 2,000 individuals annually.
Our Volunteer Program
Last year over 600 volunteers served at Bresee, helping us to provide the high quality services that enable our students to reach their full potential. In doing this, the program creates a rich framework for community involvement and provides a model of volunteerism for our youth. Meanwhile, volunteers get the rewarding experience of giving back to the community and impacting the lives of kids. Additionally, they learn new skills and gain new experiences, developing themselves personally and vocationally.
