On Thursday, September 3rd, Avalon Ambassadors Eric Lederhos and Osvaldo Garcia led a tour of Avalon Blvd. small businesses for the SBCC Thrive L.A. youth group. The idea to create and lead a tour geared towards the youth of Wilmington came out of a collaborative meeting between the On Avalon team and the SBCC Thrive L.A. youth group during one of their Thursday meetings. SBCC Thrive L.A. is a non-profit organization in Wilmington that works to empower communities in Los Angeles County to discover and develop tools for individual and collective well-being. As a group that is working to better the community as Wilmington youth, collaborating with SBCC Thrive L.A. seemed like a natural fit.
