Under New Management
Since the house on August 2nd, the community and Proyecto Pastoral team have infused the Aliso Pico Recreation Center with vibrant activity and have broughtcommunity members both young and old together in sports, arts, social groups, culture and more. IMPACTO (Imaginando Manana Pico-Aliso Community Team Outreach) has expanded to Aliso Pico Recreation Center providing afterschool expanded learning and enrichment opportunities to nearly 90 youth from area schools in grades K-12. Site supervisor, Velvet Holguin shares,“The youth love being here at the Rec Center. They have homework assistance and tutoring followed by sports and a variety of other options like music, dance or team activities.” In addition to the almost 90 youthenrolled in IMPACTO, over 500 youth are enrolled in music lessons, baseball, flag football, gymnastics, cheer and dance. Adults and youth alike participate in Aztec Dance and Tai Chi / Yoga.
In addition to serving youth and families, our work brings community together by enlisting the dedicated work of volunteers. In two short months, over 70 volunteers have worked with youth and families through IMPACTO and our other services. These include 35 volunteers from the Alpha Kappa Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega at USC, 14 volunteers from Notre Dame High School and 22 volunteers from the Bay Area who visited as part of an immersion program.
Thanks to the Aliso Business Community!
The Aliso Business Community pledged to continue its support of the Recreation Center, and funds the instructors for gymnastics, dance, and music. Such support from our community partners enables Proyecto to provide a variety of high quality and diverse programming for Boyle Heights youth!
Giving Back by Nicolette Gonzalez
Gerardo "Jerry" Barragan has been part of IMPACTO, our after-school program, since he was in first grade. Now a senior and class president at Bishop Mora Salesian High School he decided it was time to give back. He has been an exceptional leader and role model to the younger youth. As part of our recreational services at the center, he has stepped up his interest in volunteering to coach.
Jerry assists Pablo Cisneros, our Recreational Coordinator, coaching the little ones in flag football and baseball. The youth enjoy coming to practice and learning new skills. They genuinely have improved more and more each week. Jerry has overcome many challenges but continues to be an inspiration to others in his community and is a living example of how IMPACTO grows strong youth leaders.
