Mission: To create profound and lasting change in Northwest Pasadena and West Altadena through innovative programs that combat the effects of poverty and violence. Vision: A healthy, safe community where families thrive, youth reach their full potential, and equality and opportunity are accessible to all.
Each year, Flintridge Centerís after-school, mentoring, and summer programs serve more than 1,000 middle and high school students who are at-risk for dropping out of school or joining gangs. We inspire youth to stay in school and provide them with a path to graduation; we steer them away from gang life; and we expose them to whatís possible beyond the confines of their current situation. Our comprehensive reintegration services and construction trade apprenticeship preparation classes serve more than 400 formerly incarcerated individuals, former gang members or high school dropouts. We provide them with a network of support and resources, case management, life skills, job readiness training and workforce opportunities that are designed to break down barriers to self-sufficiency and employment. Designated by the City of Pasadena as the coordinating body for all gang and community violence prevention and intervention efforts, we serve as the lead agency for a coalition of more than 50 stakeholders working together since 2007 to develop and implement strategies to prevent gang and community violence. Our goals are to: Increase the number of graduates accepted into construction apprenticeships and who become union members and identify more job opportunities for graduates. Increase service and case management referrals by ex-offenders and reduce local recidivism rate by 20%. Increase the number of mentored youth, strengthen parental involvement, develop a tutoring component to improve school success and expand the mentor pool to include business professionals. Continue to address high school achievement gap through after-school programming; expand project-based learning opportunities; and boost graduation and college enrollment rates. Prioritize youth development programs as part of violence prevention efforts and deepen the collaboration between Vision 20/20 partners.
