Hello, dear Salesian Family Members! We have some exciting news to share with you. For the last two months, we have been swamped doing good :) In this e-news, you will find what we have been up to and what is coming next! I hope you enjoy it!


Channel 62 visited our youth center and created this video shown on local TV. They compared our Clubhouse with an oasis! The news is only two minutes long and expresses who we are and what we do for the children of our community. I hope you enjoy this small video.


Taking young people to visit the Universities in Northern California. The Salesian Family Youth Center and the STEM Academy of Boyle Heights HS took 18 young people to visit different universities during the spring break.

For some of these young people, it was the first time they had visited cities like San Francisco and Sacramento. Some of them were surprised by the possibilities that could be open if they chose to go to a university.

Among the universities visited are Stanford, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, San Jose State, San Francisco State, and UC Santa Cruz.


Alumni Fundraising raised 12,256 dollars!!! This last weekend our alumni group gather to celebrate life, fundraise and support the children of our community. It was a lovely event where friendship was celebrated, and a sense of hope for the future was alive.

The money for this event will be used for leadership development and to support our summer camp program.


Advocating for young people in the State Capital, Jc Montenegro and Luis Chacon accompany the LA Chamber of Commerce on their annual advocacy trip to Sacramento.
