To endorse student achievement throughout communities of color, the fourth annual Black Youth Guidance Forum (BYGF) is proud to present, “Financial Fitness: What does health have to do with it?” The event makes available space to reflect on best practices for our constituency. The BYGF invites participation of African American youth and other youth of color, school stakeholders (e.g. parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and staff), and nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles County.
