This will be achieved through customized mural art and academics, work experience, field trips and and mentoring in creative thinking that will ultimately give these youths "one voice" towards the dreams of their future. 

This project was part of the 1998 Monterey County Summer Youth Employment Training Program funded by the United States Department of Labor, supported by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors and the Monterey County Private Industry Council.
