Los Angeles County is on of the most culturally and religiously diverse places in the entire world. Yet conflicts locally and globally often begin because diversity is not respected or understood as a gift that widens our view of the world and opens the world to us in new ways.

The Pomona Valley Children and Family Collaborative and the Department of Children and Family Services have joined with other community partners to create an opportunity for youth 14-18 from all walks of life to come together to build bridges of understanding and respect while gaining tools for life from the five venues which are hosting this week long event.

This is a new and unique event hosted by the following Faith and Community Partners who will creatively through games and interaction find ways that youth can get to know themselves better, gain skills that foster a successful lifestyle and healthy relationships, and find ways to envision a community of love and peace through service.
