Governance and Leadership
The GRYD Foundation Board of Directors is passionate about our mission and passionate about good governance. With that in mind, we are striving to build a Board that can help sustain this important work, and that reflects the diversity and cross-sectional talents of Los Angeles.
Public / private partnership
The GRYD Foundation collaborates with the City of Los Angeles in a shared mission to increase community resilience to gang influence while creating jobs and bringing programming and resources to communities in need. The GRYD Foundation specifically works with the Mayor’s Office of Public Safety (Gang Reduction & Youth Development), an Office that is comprised of capable, dedicated public servants, including some who have been involved with the Summer Night Lights program since its inception.
