The Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic Capital Campaign, Building Success has been launched with a goal to raise an estimated $4.2 million. The Avis & Mark Ridley-Thomas Life Learning Center will be located at 5054 South Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles. The Life Learning Center was named in honor of two prominent leaders who proactively support coalition building, social justice, empowerment, and non-violent solutions. The newly reimagined and renovated building will be a dedicated youth center to encourage participants and their peers to “drop in” and use it as a safe zone and resource.
Many factors are limiting the successful transition from youth to adulthood in Los Angeles.
