The Watts labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC) has been successfully providing various services and programs to the youth of its target community since the organization was founded in 1965. Over the 41 years that WLCAC has had a presence in this community, it has ran numerous projects geared towards services such as summer youth employment, health education awareness, gang prevention, youth community clean-up, visual and performing arts and after-school tutoring youth literacy programs. Through the organization and implementation of these programs, WLCAC has had extensive experience dealing with outreach, recruitment, and enrollment of at-risk youth into meaningful and beneficial youth programs.

Description

By involving at-risk youth and their parents in recreational, leadership, educational and community organizing enrichment, youth and their families actively participate in individual and community improvement. ICY is a social skills and leadership development program that helps at-risk youth build community and cultural value, set lifelong and positive goals, and break social, educational, and economic barriers. WLCAC has had extensive experience with targeting and assisting at-risk youth in this area, and has made a serious commitment to continuously utilize this experience to assist community youth to enhance academic performance and become well-developed members of society.
