LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Brotherhood Crusade received a landmark grant for $800,000 from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. The funds from the Hilton Foundation will assist Brotherhood Crusade in providing services and programs that will directly impact youth by preparing and readying them to thrive in middle-wage, highly compensated careers and entrepreneurship opportunities.
“We are proud to recognize the importance of Brotherhood Crusade’s history as a community leader in South Los Angeles and are excited to support their work in building career pathways for youth throughout the area,” shares Elizabeth Cheung, senior program officer at the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
Brotherhood Crusade community services and programs are designed to change the trajectory and narrative of young adults of color and provide them with the requisite skills to excel in life and make a positive impact in their respective communities.
Conrad Hilton said “Love one another, for that is the whole law; so our fellow men deserve to be loved and encouraged – never to be abandoned to wander alone in poverty and darkness.”
President and CEO Charisse Bremond Weaver of the Brotherhood Crusade said “This is what great partnerships are all about, an alignment in understanding the critical needs of our youth and how through learning, thriving, connecting, leading and working we will forever change the outlook of our community. We provide an immense amount of love, care and resources to the youth we serve; they know they will never be alone and this grant will directly support our goal to break the cycle of poverty.”
