Empowering Our Youth NR17334ti

Los Angeles: For the past 10 years On a Mission Inc., in partnership with LAPD Southwest Division, has provided opportunity for under-privileged families and at-risk youth. Through the years, they have had a positive impact on thousands of families. On a Mission decided to take inner-city kids to a life changing adventure internationally. Making a bold decision to move forward with little to no funding.

In April of 2018, On a Mission plans to take 25 deserving students to Beijing, China for a special educational tour designed to expose our youth to culture, travel, and education. Students will be traveling to this amazing destination for a once in a lifetime experience that will help shape our children's future and perspective; while gaining an appreciation for other cultures, and customs in our ever-changing world.

On a Mission and LAPD is confident that the community will join, and generously sponsor a student, or donate to the trip. No child shall be turned away for lack of funds. On a Mission will find ways to assist the student in raising the funds necessary to participate. On a Mission and LAPD Southwest is looking forward once again to being witness to our community rallying together to invest in the future of our youth.

Our informational meeting for parents and students will be held on November 18, 2017, 10:00 a.m., at LAPD Southwest Community Police Station located at 1546 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90062.
