In the Spring of 2012 The Los Angeles Police Department Community Safety Partnership (CSP)in collaboration with the HACLA Housing Services Department/Resident Services teamed up with Keith Johnson of the Southern California Falcons Youth Football to start the first ever HACLA Pee Wee football team.
Per CSP and HACLA Keith Johnson was selected based on the So. Cal. Falcons unique and proven model for sports based youth development. Having experience and proven track record in youth football would be instrumental in building an effective youth football and mentoring program in Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts, Jordan Downs and the surrounding community. The Goal of the program is to use sports as a vehicle to introduce and reinforce the concept of strong character, positive values, personal responsibility and academic excellence.
In two short years the program has gained national attention for its overall success in crime reduction, youth empowerment and bridging the gap between community and Law Enforcement.
I am pleased that we were asked to provide a leadership role in this important community safety program.
GO BEARS!!!!!! GO FALCONS!!!!!!
