The GRYD Foundation

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.

To combat the problem of community violence and risk factors for youth gang joining, our programming focuses on addressing the lack of community safe spaces and promoting workforce development and employment opportunities for youth.

The GRYD Effect

The GRYD Foundation is a key partner with Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office of Public Safety, Gang Reduction and Youth Development (“GRYD” Office.) 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.

I wish to continue the momentum in building trust, particularly in communities of color, and improving public safety.
