Project Description

The GRYD Foundation mission is to create a safer, stronger, healthier Los Angeles by bringing together public and private resources to help youth and families overcome the obstacles that come with living in neighborhoods most vulnerable to gang violence, crime, drugs and poverty. GRYD programming turns 32 recreation centers into safe hubs to engage community members in positive prosocial arts, cultural and physical activities while also connecting them to vital health, wellness and professional development resources. The GRYD program model includes the hiring of local artists, instructors and youth from the surrounding program sites, providing marginalized communities with economic and professional development opportunities. GRYD Foundation believes that every individual, regardless of race, gender or geography, should have the resources, tools and opportunities to Live, and to Lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
