SCE FCU Foundation Proudly Sponsors Grand Opening of Community Empowerment Center
The SCE FCU Foundation recently sponsored the grand opening of the Girls Today Women Tomorrow Green Community Empowerment Center in Boyle Heights. A longtime partner of Girls Today Women Tomorrow (GTWT), we're proud to have assisted them in their five-year journey to make their dream of opening this center a reality.
The new "green" Empowerment Center will allow young ladies from low-income and underserved families to participate in a whole new world of learning experiences, including world-class cooking classes, media and technology training, self-defense workshops, leadership development, financial literacy, college preparation, and more.
In Phase II of development, the Center will be renovated to include a professional teaching kitchen / television taping studio, video editing and wireless computer lab, film screening area, and community garden. Upgrades will use earth-friendly materials and renewable energy technology, exposing youth to new green initiative careers and creating work experience programs for them to educate the local community on inexpensive energy-saving alternatives.
Congratulations Girls Today Women Tomorrow! We're so proud to be a partner in your success!
