On June 27th, our YO!LB members Carlos, Mykel, and Danny were honored as Young Leaders at the Brothers, Sons, Selves Coalition’s Annual Year-End Celebration for their efforts to create and sustain change across their local communities in Long Beach.

YO! LB is a student-led empowerment club that aims to create a more vibrant and inclusive community in the Long Beach Unified School District through education, organizing and action. Under the leadership of Omar Cardenes, YO! LB members take part in dialogues, activities, and events that build their self-esteem, strengthen their leadership, and deepen their sense of responsibility for their fellow students, faculty members, and the greater Long Beach community.
