Our Kidz World program encourages students to improve their grades and conduct. We offer homework assistance, tutoring and activities to increase life and social skills. Students also participate in programs that tackle topics such as substance abuse and gang violence prevention. Field trips and fun activities are additional ways our program participants gain knowledge.

Student Outreach Program

CLI encourages its students to develop a strong stance against adversities they face within their communities. Our youth combat poverty, gang violence and drug abuse through our Silent Protest. Our Homeless Caretaking program gives youth an opportunity to pack care packages of food, gloves, scarfs and toiletries and deliver them throughout the city to the homeless.
