When we opened EntreNous Youth Empowerment Services and Compton YouthBuild, we made a commitment to our members to treat them with respect, care and compassion.  We accomplish this through:

  • Positive, stable and nurturing relationships with supportive adults
  • A rigorous and relevant project based academic program centered around social justice
  • Pathways to and preparation for postsecondary education 
  • A safe haven from violence, gang activity and traumatic stress
  • Leadership development designed to instill a sense of responsibility for self, family and community
