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. They will join CSUN students from various departments and programs, including Africana studies, liberal studies, and the credential program. BYGF promotes self-care, including but not limited to financial literacy, educational literacy, and health & well-being, especially for those affected by the recent teacher strike in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
