Rise Urban Leadership Fellowship

For over eight years  the Rise Urban Leadership Fellowship has trained effective leaders from all over the world .  The organization was founded by Tony Young and Dwayne Crenshaw as a bridge into non profit development by encouraging Community Action Projects.  Past projects have involved educational, psychological counseling and therapy and various other topics to improve the lives of local San Diegans. This year the cohort group includes a multicultural  group with various   educational backgrounds, and experiences.  The opportunity to learn from each other is tremendous where our cohort’s life projects flourish and improve the lives of many people. I am absolutely ecstatic to be a part of the program. If interested in next year please check us out at

Homework Team

Martin Luther King Park hosted the 2nd Annual Career Fair and Softball Game through the upcoming organization  HOMEWORK SAN DIEGO.  HOMEWORK SAN DIEGO, founded by Jason Shanley, is designed to assist the formerly incarcerated individuals in job training and employment.  The event included a Softball Game, serenaded by a disc jockey playing  HipHop, and several  Union based Organizations.  The local Journeyman, Painters , and Carpenters shared information about valuable job training and employment.  The Homework Program Participants have an excellent opportunity to learn valuable trades to support them with  incomes to provide support for their families. The formerly incarcerated population has the right and opportunity to improve their life and reduce recidivism .  The Hope is that people can be trained to earn enough money for their families and not return to crime, or be left in environments that create criminal behavior.  We salute the HOMEWORK SAN DIEGO TEAM  for training and employment programs for San Diegans to improve their lives.
