    Founded by a Black woman in 2009, KITS empowers foster youth to heal from trauma through the arts. Now, KITS is launching a Production Studio for a Cause to change the current trajectory of youth in foster care by increasing career readiness, social capital & personal wellness. Operating as a social enterprise, KITS will use the tools & labor income of the entertainment industry to provide racial & economic equity to LA’s most underserved youth through workplace training in – & the artistic outlet of – filmmaking & other creative industries.
