CCF News Fall 2016: Investing in L.A.’s Black Male Youth

Though they are only 10 percent of all L.A. young people, Black youth make up nearly a third of all youth on probation. And once in the system, it is hard to get out, with more than 80 percent facing re-arrest within three years. We are losing out on countless innovators and entrepreneurs – a generation of civic and community leaders who could shape the future of L.A. By investing in the potential of our young Black men, we can help them sow the seeds for life success and break the school-to-prison pipeline.
