David Chavez, Ph.D., Professor
The following settings are where my students are currently working. The partnerships are in various stages of development. They are:
Boys & Girls Club of Waterman Gardens: The club serves a public housing complex and provides diversified activities that meet the interests of all young people. Core programs encourage activities with adults, peers, and family members that enable kids to enhance self-esteem and fulfill their potential. The Club offers diversified, developmentally appropriate program activities focusing on the physical, emotional, cultural, and social needs and interest of boys and girls.
Rainbow Pride Youth Alliance: The mission of Rainbow Pride Youth Alliance is to provide a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI) youth of the Inland Empire. Their primary program is a drop-in youth center where LGBTQ youth can meet, participate in group activities, learn about and seek community resources, and give back to the community.
