Toberman Neighborhood Center, founded in 1903, is committed to assisting Harbor Area families by delivering life-changing services that encourage, inform, educate and empower them to live healthy and purposeful lives. Their primary programs include the FamilySource Center; Children, Youth & Family services including academic enrichment; Family Literacy/Learning Program; and Gang Intervention/Prevention services.
Las Candalistas is sponsoring their “Mountain and Sea Adventures” for 12-15 youths (ages 10 through 15) as part of their Gang Prevention Program. Enrollees are assessed and identified as being at significantly high risk of joining gangs. This is a 6-day summer camp experience where they will live aboard a marine research vessel off Catalina Island which would open up a whole new world of possibilities as well as exposure to future career options for them.
