BEYOND THE BELL, HOWARD SERPAS
Beyond the Bell’s vision is for every child and youth to have a safe place to be in the presence of a responsible, caring adult while engaging in activities that support achievement and promote social, emotional, physical development beyond the regular school day. In collaboration with community partners, the program ensures that all children and youth in the LAUSD have access to high quality, safe, and supervised education, enrichment, and recreation programs that engage and inspire learning and achievement beyond the regular school day. Howard’s vision and tireless support has enabled LAFC and the LAFC Foundation to partner with Beyond the Bell on numerous projects including the building of futsal courts, shoe giveaways and soccer clinics. We are honored to recognize Beyond the Bell’s Regional Director, Howard Serpas as our Community Spotlight recipient presented by Target.
