Since 2011, Urban City Youth (UCY) has been aware of the changing demographics of youth delinquency and how their absence of professionalism and mentoring can lead to dangerous lifestyles. Hence, UCY has begun programs that divert young people in Los Angeles away from the street life, and help them to discover skills in radio and media production. They have assisted many young people below the age of nineteen and are dedicated to expanding their work to more demanding demographics of youth, including young victims of sex trafficking in Los Angeles County.
The Gospel & Gumbo radio show will continue to provide professional training in Radio show production to these victims in order to increase their job acceptance rates in Los Angeles and decrease their recidivism. The Urban City Youth Radio show is going on its 4th year of being broadcast in the Los Angeles Radio market.
