In partnership with the Hacker Fund, MYF has invested in the "Compton Innovation Center". The new center will serve the 25,000+ students who attend CUSD and will provide them with a homebase from which they can develop their professional skills and their startup ideas. This center will empower Compton stakeholders to prototype technology projects, hire locally, and serve their city for years to come. The Compton Innovation Center will help develop the local Compton economy and will ensure positive multi-generational change.


One Watershed is a program developed by Surfrider LA and Venice Beach startup, StokeShare, to connect inner-city youth to nature through surfing. One Watershed is anchored in the enjoyment element of Surfrider’s mission. For the launch of the event MYF provided transportation and meals for participants and will continue to support Surfrider's mission in hopes of inspiring a new generation of coastal conservationists who understand the importance of our ocean and the need to protect it.


Tropical Cyclone Idai ripped through Mozambique March 4 - 21, 2019. The Category 3 storm made landfall in the early hours of March 15 with 110 mph winds and heavy rains devastating this southern African country. More than 1.8 million people have been affected, at least 110,000 have sought refuge in camps and over 5000 of cases of Cholera have been identified. Our partners at Waves For Water will be on the ground next week with the task of providing immediate clean water access for up to 100,000 people. 

Our initial goal with any relief initiative is to help mitigate the suffering by providing victims with access to safe water, critical in preventing or limiting the spread of waterborne illnesses. If you don’t have the means to help financially, please help us by spreading the word  #WavesForWater #Mozambique #CleanWater #Donate #Aid #Water
