Child Recreation & Tutoring


The L.A. KIDS Program is implemented by the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, made possible by a Community Development Block Grant and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (H.U.D.).

Mission Statement:

The mission of L.A. KIDS is to promote the development of youth in low-income areas and offer equal access to quality recreation programs by providing FREE challenging physical, educational and social activities to occupy the youth’s time constructively and prevent juvenile delinquency.  Our goal is to provide valuable programs and nutrition in a well-supervised, safe, structured and nurturing environment.

Since 1996, L.A. KIDS has been providing FREE recreational opportunities for our City’s youth ages 5-18 at their local neighborhood recreation center.  This program provides young people a level playing field with equal access to quality recreational and educational programming.  Currently, there are over 100 recreation centers that are a designated L.A. KIDS site throughout the greater Los Angeles area.


To locate a recreation center near you, please visit the L.A. KIDS web site or contact their office:
