    Youth of Promise

    There are two Pasadenas. The city has one of the largest wealth disparities in California, and this disparity traps communities in cycles of poverty, violence and incarceration. Flintridge Center works to break these cycles through the Youth of Promise program, an afterschool enrichment program that invest deeply in youth exposed to trauma and adverse childhood experiences. We know that when we provide care instead of punishment and opportunity instead of incarceration, youth will realize their full potential.
