Wooten Golf Classic CANCELLED...Support still needed                              

Our board has opted to cancel our annual golf tournament for a second year in a row due to the pandemic. The funds typically raised are still needed so we hope you will continue to support the event as a sponsor.

The following sponsorships are available to provide support for our free afterschool and summer programs for students in grades 3-12. The center reopened in June 2021 and is currently operating hybrid programs both onsite and online.

Thank you for your support for our students. Here's thanks from the kids!​ The video is from our last gathering in 2019.

Wooten Online Activities

We closed our youth center in March 2020 due to the pandemic and immediately went fully virtual. Here's pics from our summer and afterschool activities in 2020-21. Looking forward to our reopening in June 2021 and hybrid summer program!

We closed our youth center buildings at 91st and Western in Los Angeles temporarily in March 2020 due to the pandemic. 

Here are some pics from our free Wooten Online afterschool and summer programs for students in grades 3-12.
