In honor of Black History Month, we are highlighting various organizations in Los Angeles to engage the community with ways to get involved and create change. This week we shine a light on the Watts Empowerment Center.

The Watts Empowerment Center is “The #1 Most Active Community Center in Los Angeles.” This 12,900 sq ft state-of-the-art facility committed to the children, youth, and families within Watts Housing Projects. Locals can discover their purpose and develop their talents with the help of top industry and business professionals that provide mentorship to many within the community.

Resources offered range from Sports Leagues, After School Tutoring, STEM Media Lab, Culinary Arts Kitchen, Performing Arts Studio, Music, Acting, Fashion Design, Etiquette Courses, Resume Building Workshops, Anti-Bullying Classes, Mental Health/Stress Management, and beyond.
