Event Canceled, Support Still Needed

Very sad to announce that our golf tournament scheduled to be held at Braemar Country Club has been canceled due to the pandemic. We hope that you and your family and friends and businesses are well. Click here for COVID-19 information and resources for Los Angeles County. 


We are currently providing private tutoring and more online. For those who can, we would greatly appreciate your support despite our cancellation. We are still in need of the funds raised from this annual charity event.

The following sponsorships are available to provide support for our free college and career readiness activities providing more than 70 private tutoring sessions per week in math and English language arts. We also have weekly classes in robotics and world languages and culture and discussion groups including Teen Talk and Parent Power Group, and more.
