The GRYD Foundation believes that every youth, regardless of race, gender or geography, should have the resources, opportunities, and systems to grow up to lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
Founded in 2012, The GRYD Foundation is a nonprofit organization and core implementation partner for the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD). The City directs a coordinated strategy across 23 gang-impacted zones to increase community resilience to the influence of gang violence while promoting peace and youth development. The GRYD Foundation works collaboratively with the City toward two objectives: to reduce gang-related violence and to strengthen individuals, families, and communities.
Through this dynamic public private partnership, we are building a safer, healthier, stronger Los Angeles. We like to call it The GRYD Effect!
We invite you to join us as we continue to strengthen communities and create opportunities for youth to work, learn, grow and excel.
