He expressed his gratitude for our contributions to the program’s success with our Senior Year Sponsorships and On My Way programs.

The program offers classes in cooking, managing money, computer training and other life skills. The ILS Youth Center located in Martinez, includes a library, computer lab, a classroom, a clothes closet, a shower stocked with hygiene products and towels, and an emergency pantry.
