Summary

This project will build a gymnasium and create its first ever physical education department for youth between the ages of 16-24 who live in poverty and have been pushed out of traditional schools. Our youth do not have access to a local gym, the money to pay for a gym membership, or personal resources to meet physical fitness goals.

Challenge

LA CAUSA YouthBuild lacks a physical education department or proper space to conduct physical education activities. We use a parking lot to jog and conduct jumping jacks, often having to move out of the way for passing vehicles. Our participants have to place their palms on dirty, hot asphalt when doing push ups. This project will ensure that our program participants receive the physical education needed by having access to proper workout equipment and resources. It will serve 100 participants.

Solution

LA CAUSA YouthBuild provides educational, vocational and leadership development courses for youth 16-24 years old. This new physical education department would be an added component to what we already offer to our community. It will enable program participants to exercise regularly, maintain fit, and learn about nutritional facts--a robust educational department that will teach them how to fight the food deserts they live in. It would provide a space where no local gym exists.

Long-Term Impact

Our project will serve 100 students on a rolling basis every academic year, becoming part of the overall curriculum that our participants would go through before completing the program. Our long-term impact will ensure that every youth who walks through our doors understands the importance of health, nutrition and fitness. It will teach them to be critical agents of health, knowledge that can be taught to other community members.
