Welcome to the homepage for Youth and Minority Empowerment!

This committee is tasked with representing and advocating on behalf of our community’s youth and minority groups. Our main goal is to promote equitable access to opportunities and resources to those groups that continue to be underrepresented in today’s society.

We look forward to working with our local schools, organizations, and community members to ensure we continue to diversify North Hollywood. Please join us at our meetings.

New Directions for Youth to Build a Health & Recreation Center

Councilmember Krekorian secured $600,000 to help New Directions for Youth, a North Hollywood-based non-profit, build a new health and recreation center in Council District 2. The funding, included in the 2017-2018 Consolidated Plan budget, will help this community organization deliver even more programs and services to at-risk youth and their families.
