Sam Solakyan Invited to Join the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Youth Foundation


I am proud to announce that I’ve been invited to join the prestigious board of the Sheriff’s Youth Foundation. The Sheriff’s Youth Foundation is dedicated to provide protection and meaningful activities for Los Angeles’ younger generation. I feel deeply honored to be invited to the board as I myself am a devoted supporter of organizations that support children and young people across the world.

The Sheriff’s Youth Foundation has been working tirelessly since it was established in 1985 to provide a safe haven for the youngest members of the Los Angeles community. The main goal of the foundation is to keep children in high risk areas away from crime and drugs by providing meaningful after school activities and creating a connection to the youth community of Los Angeles. SYF’s work has been proven successful in giving the security necessary for kids to improve their grades and keep away from crime.

I hope the experience I’ve gathered from earlier engagements such as: Filipino Children’s Foundation, Glendale Healthy kids, Serve the People and the most recent, Project Child Save, which focuses on locating and rescuing missing children that often are in great risk of being traded as slaves of sexual labor, will be utilized in this involvement too. As I’ve commented before: “There is nothing more vital or necessary than the empowerment of our youth”.
