YO! Watts youth participant being interviewed on camera for a social media video
EWDD is launching a series of social media videos across its @laewdd Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. The goal of the series is to provide information about EWDD’s YouthSource, WorkSource and BusinessSource Centers, including the various services available to Angelenos.

The first video is a tour highlighting the Youth Opportunity Movement, Watts YouthSource Center in Watts (referred to as YO! Watts).

Narrated by YO Watts YouthSource Director Hugh Carter, the video illuminates the philosophy behind the Watts YouthSource Center, which is to help youth develop a mindset to overcome obstacles in order to achieve their goals.

“If we can equip them with the proper mindset to go out into the world, no matter what they come across, they will still be successful,” Hugh said.

Connect with us on FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram to stay current with the exciting programs and opportunities that EWDD offers. Visit our YouTube Channel often as we continue to develop more inside looks of our service centers, and watch local community members speak about how EWDD helped turn their lives around.
