A Better LA

Posted by Armando Alves | 22-03-2010 23:14 | Category: Social aid



USC football head coach Pete Carroll gathered LA community leaders together hoping to build “a better LA”, giving an escape to gang violence and school abandon to kids which he coached on the football field.
In April 2003 “A Better LA” was founded,  teaching “skills that support individual and collective achievement of visions, goals and objectives. The special curriculum addresses issues related to gangs, drugs, self-esteem, isolation, depression and suicide, lack of motivation, and perceived inability to prepare for the future. We believe that helping to change communities from within is the only way we will sustainably reduce violence and save lives.”
