BofA Presents Youth Institute with Generous Donation

LA Y Bank of America Check Presentation

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. To help us continue our vital work we count on the generosity of our community partners. Thank you @BankofAmerica for your generous support for the Youth Institute of Media Arts (YIMA) at the Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA. 

On December 11th @BankofAmerica presented us with a $100,000 check. These funds will directly help teens in our urban communities develop a teen workforce by uniquely using technology to promote positive youth development and enhance both academic success and career readiness. Like no other non-profit program, YIMA guarantees participants acceptance to Cal State LA and opens a pathway to support high school graduation, post-secondary education access and completion, and ultimately career success, helping to move LMI and at-risk youth up the economic ladder.

Thank you @BankofAmerica for your generosity and leadership on behalf of the teens in our most vulnerable communities.
