CLI is a unique summer program for Central Coast high school aged youth that aims to build leadership skills and social awareness. At CLI students from diverse backgrounds explore their multifaceted identities, learn how to recognize and counter bias and gain advocacy skills and tools to bring back to their schools and communities. Southern California Edison donated $5,000 to support general scholarships for any Santa Barbara area students wishing to attend the program but needing financial assistance.
“Southern California Edison’s gift is an investment in our community’s young people and, through them, in our collective future. We hope this gift represents the start of a long relationship between them and Just Communities/CLI,” said Jarrod Schwartz, Executive Director of Just Communities.
