The Beverly Hills/Hollywood Branch of the NAACP is focused on youth educational and social issues and the disparity between the resources available to youth living in upper/middle class communities and those living in this inner city/urban communities. We have developed a yearlong enrichment program designed to recruit, simulate, educate and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among minority youth and have partnered with mental health organizations that provide resources for many issues faced by pre-teens and teens in their daily lives.
