The Youth Builder Program was founded by Allan Law in 1967 to provide inner city youth with free after school, weekend, and summertime recreational activities. Over the years it evolved to include after school, weekend, and summertime personal development, educational, cultural and community service activities. The focus was on preparing youth for the transition to middle and high school, and providing opportunities for advanced placement programming, college career exploration, and after school tutoring.
The Youth Builder Program currently provides over 200 underprivileged children in need annually with backpacks filled with school supplies, school clothing, and funding for field trips. Since 1967, and continuing after Allan retired from teaching in 1999 the Youth Builder Program has served over 15,000 inner city youth.
