Centerfield Partners with Lennox LEAP
One of Centerfield’s nine core values is giving back to our local community and the world around us. Our dedicated Culture Team works hard to make sure this value is reflected throughout each of our offices in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Montego Bay and Kingston.
This year, Centerfielders in Los Angeles are participating in a new ongoing volunteer program at the Lennox School District in Lennox, CA. The Lennox Enrichment After-School Program (Lennox LEAP) is an expanded learning program operating at underserved elementary schools in Lennox and Inglewood. Centerfield is volunteering at Moffett Elementary, which was recently named one of LA County’s Top Public Schools for closing the achievement gap for low-income African American and Latino students.
Lennox LEAP’s mission is to provide a safe, exciting and nurturing environment where students are actively engaged in both academic and enrichment activities. Most of the kids Centerfielders will volunteer with are K-2nd grade students in Moffett’s dual language program and they are often behind in their reading skills. They need extra support and attention to improve in academics and help with socialization, and we couldn’t be more excited to help them get there!
Throughout the program, students will participate in a variety of activities that promote interest in visual and performing arts, computer technology, business, engineering and athletics. Centerfielders will collaborate with Lennox LEAP staff to provide experiences that teach life skills and reinforce the importance of being citizens of good character with confidence and pride in their community.
Huge shoutout to our amazing Culture Team for organizing this initiative!
