During the summer months, our JYC & YUCA youth clubs met regularly every Friday. They had summer trivia, mixer games, and luau themed competitions with prizes, along with food and drinks. Our youth club members were able to volunteer for the Lotus Festival, in Echo Park. It was a super hot weekend, but we had fun with the childrens arts and crafts booths, performance stage, selling water, and the traditional Dragon Boat race. Our “Increase the Peace” Youth Advocacy team was able to bring back their Boyle Heights Clean up event after their last time of hosting the event in 2019 due to the Pandemic. It was a good event to help beautify our neighboring city streets. We were able to take all of our YUCA, “Increase the Peace”, and JYC youth leadership teams to their separate training retreats before school started. First, we went to Yosemite, then Big Bear, and finally Solvang. It was an amazing experience for our YUCA leaders to go hiking and sightseeing in Yosemite, “IP leaders to kayak in Big Bear Lake, and JYC to go swimming in the pool and feed the ostriches in Solvang. Our training retreats are an important time for the youth leaders to bond with one another, as they spent time planning and budget workshops, engaged in public speaking trainings, team building exercises, cooking, and recreation together. All of our youth leaders are united, equipped, and ready to lead their peers with their full calendar of events. LHTP hosted our 2nd Annual “Back to School” Carnival event. We give a “Big Thanks” to First Chinese Baptist Church who were the main sponsor of our event and Councilmember Eunisses Hernandez, CD1 donated groceries. We were excited to partner with our three youth leadership teams, Citizens Church, and Firecracker Race friends who volunteered to help with the registration and enrollment of new students, mini carnival games and prizes, and backpack giveaway filled with school supplies for the kids, Dino’s burgers for lunch, and bags of groceries filled with fresh produce, milk, and eggs to “Kick Off” and help our families get ready for the NEW School Year!!
