Steve Auer put together a request for the Los Angeles Youth Network for funding to go towards summer activities for the kids they shelter. A $3,000 grant was awarded. Please watch the short video: https://www.outsideonline.com/2236361/what-happened-when-i-took-homeless-kids-island
The “Summer of Fun” that you helped to underwrite is now over. Thanks in part to your support, our youth had lots of adventures these past few months. Some adventures were in town. Others, a short drive away. But for the youth at our Transitional Living Program, the best adventure was a boat ride away.
Wes Siler, who runs Indefinitely Wild, once again led a group of TLP residents on an outdoor adventure they will never forget. The link below will take you to his on-line column about the experience. Enjoy the read. And when you have the chance, I hope you will watch the 10-minute video that is embedded in the piece. It’s a treat—like a DVD extra with youth providing the commentary!
Best wishes from all of us at LAYN
