As of July 1st, 2018, the Jamestown Community Center and Loco Bloco have formally merged. Both youth development organizations have long established track records of providing enriching, high quality programming to youth to promote their healthy transition into adulthood. We chose to merge because of our shared commitment to youth development, our shared love for the Mission community, and our shared experience in developing leadership among low income youth and families.
The excellence Loco Bloco brings to arts programming and performance, and the expertise Jamestown brings to academic enrichment and youth development, coupled with our long history of mutual collaboration will lead to a better, stronger, more efficient and sustainable organization. At the same time, the displacement and gentrification pressure our communities are now facing necessitate bold solutions like this one, which will allow us to provide deeper and more comprehensive services more efficiently. We are stronger together. Click here to learn more about Loco Bloco.
