It’s a honor to announce that we will be continuing our relationship with Homeboy Industries. These men and women are the backbone of our events bringing commitment, dedication and enjoyment to all that we do from setting up the event to answering questions and providing a safe environment for all to enjoy. I am very proud to have them be a part of the Gourmet Music Carnival.
“Homeboy Industries is the living example of our mission statement, “nothing stops a bullet like a job.”
Started as a jobs program offering alternatives to gang violence in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Homeboy assists at-risk, recently released, and formerly gang involved youth to become contributing members of their communities through a variety of services in response to their multiple needs.
Free programs — including counseling, education, tattoo removal, substance abuse and addiction assistance, job training and job placement — enable young people to redirect their lives.
Homeboy provides them with hope for their futures and is the nation’s largest gang-intervention and re-entry program – a model to all.
