IMPACTO (Imaginando Mañana Pico-Aliso Community Team Outreach)

IMPACTO is an after-school academic enrichment program designed to motivate and inspire underserved youth of Boyle Heights. In an area plagued with poverty, a suffering public education system, and the threat of gang violence, the youth served at IMPACTO are provided with more than an after school program; they are given hope, encouragement, alternatives, and a safe haven. IMPACTO works to empower youth through tutoring, personal development, local community participation and increased social awareness so that they may become great civic leaders of tomorrow.  IMPACTO serves nearly 200 youth at two sites: a center-based site and a school-based site at Dolores Mission School.  The program runs year-round from 2:30-6:00pm during the school year and from 11:00am – 5:30pm during the summer.

Right now, in just about every corner of this city, you’ll find high school seniors arriving at an important crossroads in their lives:  graduation.  But for the  seniors at  IMPACTO, graduation marks an especially pivotal moment.  Because in a community where  pressures like the presence of gangs and poverty loom large in a youth’s life, this program is their second home – a safe place where the support they receive from staff serves as a central guiding force in their young lives.  And leaving home can be stressful, no matter where you come from...Read More >>
