Boys & Girls Clubs of LA Harbor

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. We achieve this through a commitment to quality programs and services in an environment that is safe, nurturing and inspiring.
In response to the increasing demand and the needs of the youth we serve, we greatly enhanced our academic, arts and athletics enrichment programming for all members, grades K-12. Today, we are the largest private nonprofit, daily service provider to at-risk youth in the Los Angeles Harbor area, operating programs at our three Clubhouses year-round and providing after-school programming on ten public school campuses.

The Princess Mhoon Dance Institute

The Princess Mhoon Dance Institute is an acclaimed dance institute located in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. Having served thousands of families through our in-­studio and off-­site programs, we believe that dance is a catalyst for personal, professional and artistic development.
Through the leadership and training of award-winning Director & Choreographer Princess Mhoon, many students have realized professional careers on Broadway, the Concert Stage, and in Hollywood while others have developed self-esteem and life skills that translate their training from the studio to the stage, to the real world. PMDI's impact has expanded to reach the White House. In February of 2016, the institute was invited to perform as a part of a Celebration of African-American Women in Dance hosted by First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Black Freedom Fund

Through Christal Brown's non-profit organization INSPIRIT, she initiated the Black Freedom Fund. The BFF will offer assistance to black artists, families, and entrepreneurs, who due to Covid-19, a lack of resources, canceled work engagements, or nominal exposure have been under-resourced.
From Christal:

"As the steward of this fund I will keep all donors abreast of our efforts to create and initiate joy in the lives of black people during this time of civil unrest. I believe by acknowledging and supporting the joy of black lives we can solidify our humanity and commit to the practice of holistic healing."

MoB Ballet

Launched in 2015, MoBBallet (MoBB) preserves, presents, and promotes the contributions and stories of Black artists in the field of Ballet, illustrating that they are an integral part of dance history at large. Our mission is to illuminate the lesser-known history and legacies of international professional Black ballet artists that have been muted, or oftentimes eradicated from the larger canon of dance history, by being the digital platform that compiles it in one online location

Accessible Yoga

Accessible Yoga believes that all people—regardless of ability or background—deserve equal access to yoga. Through education and advocacy, we share the teachings and benefits of yoga with those who have been marginalized. We envision a world where everyone has access to the yoga teachings that offer individual empowerment and spiritual awakening. We identify and remove barriers to access, build strong networks, and advocate for an accessible, equitable, and dynamic yoga culture.

Earl Mosley’s Diversity of Dance

The mission of Earl Mosley's Diversity of Dance, Inc., is to provide an environment where student artists from diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds can achieve the highest levels of excellence through positive collaborations with teachers and peers. The organization strives to build a community of dance which enables each student to connect both technically, artistically, and spiritually with their own art and individuality. Participants collaborate with their peers as they learn from one another and their teachers/artists in programs that model mutual respect and celebrate diversity. EMDOD creates a community where participants can feel safe to explore and cultivate their dreams. Growing together, participants prepare for the challenges that lie ahead for them in the world of dance and life.
