The Leadership Academy and Mentoring Program (LAMP) invites Long Beach youth between the ages of 14-24 years old to join a fun and leadership-building program. LAMP is a unique mentoring program for teens looking to develop skills in: photography, fashion and graphic design, and music and video production. Located at Long Beach Community Action Partnership headquarters, LAMP serves youth who come from low income households so they may have an opportunity to be trained by experts in any of the courses. Students who participate in the program are required to join workshops that discuss leadership, personal etiquette, public speaking, and networking. Students also take the Strengths Quest assessment to learn what areas they are strong in and how it applies to their personal, academic and career goals.

The Leadership Academy and Mentoring Program (LAMP) begins Tuesday, July 22, 2014 from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. at Long Beach Community Action Partnership 3012 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90807

LAMP Summer Schedule:

  • Music Production: Monday – Tuesday from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Video Production: Wednesday from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Photography: Tuesday and Thursday from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Fashion and Graphic Design: Thursday – Friday from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.

During the spring, LAMP teens produced two albums called “The Progress Report” and “The Letter Grade.”

“I’m excited to kick off our LAMP summer session for youth who are interested in the great courses we offer. As the flagship of our many youth programs, we are looking forward to having our students succeed not only in the digital arts, but as young and contributing Long Beach citizens,” said Long Beach Community Action Partnership Executive Director Darick Simpson.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with new and returning LAMP teens. I’m really impressed with the quality of clothing they’ve designed, the two music EP’s, photos, and videos they’ve produced. The LAMP program includes youth from different backgrounds, such as math club presidents, student athletes, and much more,” said LAMP Coordinator Floyd Hampton Livingston.
