Marvin Delcid is about to graduate from Bell Multicultural High School ready to continue his work in sustainable agriculture, a passion he's had since he was a young boy working his uncle's farm in El Salvador. He was 14 when he moved to the U.S. to reunite with his mother, excited for the educational opportunities a life in the U.S. could afford him. He has not wasted any time. At Bell, he maintains a vegetable garden and teaches classmates about recycling, global warming, and other environmental topics. Outside of school, he volunteers at City Blossoms, a non-profit community garden built for kids where he grows vegetables.

LAYC's The Club Participants Made Blankets for Shelter  Animals

The Club made no-sew blankets for the Humane Rescue Alliance as their final project. The after-school program aims to engage youth in community service and peace projects. The group visited the shelter and met the dogs, rabbits, and cats that are in need of loving homes. The Club thanks its blanket sponsors and those who supported the bake sale fundraiser for this project.
