With 25 years of work in South Los Angeles, LABC is taking proven approaches of working with black boys and organizing it into one model, ONXY to bring across all schools in South LA. The model addresses disproportionate disparities in favorable public health indicators between 10-24 year old Black males and all other segments of society and is designed to promote sound decision-making and cognitive freedom.
