    Our mission is to help young people understand their individual:
    mental, emotional and physical needs through the practices of proper mentoring.
    Our vision is to empower a generation of community leaders who live a balanced, purposeful and wholesome life.

    In 2007, Mayra Zaragoza, still a high school student, established Young Warriors Youth Mentoring Program, under the umbrella of, Tia Chucha's Cultural Center & Bookstore with the help of the co-founder and know author Luis J Rodriguez. Young Warriors was created to meet the needs of the young people living in the low-income communities of the northeast San Fernando Valley.

    From Trauma to Transformation Creative Writing

    For all of our community who were at one point incarcerated, we are starting a workshop series in Teatro and Creative Writing for adults June 11. From Trauma to Transformation is a project inspired by the work of Luis J. Rodriguez to reduce and end mass incarceration. This project is about bearing witness to those impacted by the system to change the perception of mass incarceration. We will be using the arts as a tool for the participants to find their voice, and share on their terms how they were impacted. This workshop is open to adults who were formerly incarcerated. Please respect the privacy of those who will be attending.
