We have had an incredible summer and are continuing the Lesson Plans and State Standards curriculum. Arternatives Creative Youth Diversion Program. Many kids were amazed and actively creative in every single class. This course was designed and initiated by Mr. Hector Rios @ Mid Valley Youth Center in Van Nuys, CA. in 2003. It has developed and continued through New Directions For Youth in 2009, and is currently being taught at C-Harv College Prep Charter Schools to 6th-12th graders. “The best is yet to come”
