Exposition Park 

 Welcome to Expo Park!  We have been working in this neighborhood just South of USC for 8 years, blessed with amazing partners who like us are passionate about youth development through art.  Expo Center, home to the historic swim stadium and next door to our treasured Coliseum, has been a valued ally and program host from our beginnings in this area -  incredibly lucky for us given their dynamic role as a community hub for members in every generation.
