Incarcerated Youth Tutorial Project (IYTP)
iYTP was formed in 1988 as part of the MSA (Muslim Student Association) to provide incarcerated juveniles with the opportunity to become productive members of society by accommodating these youth who have most fallen victim to depraved circumstances via mentoring, tutoring, and counseling services. iYTP focuses on encouraging incarcerated juveniles to pursue a secondary education through a curriculum based GED tutoring, and on decreasing recidivism rates by counseling and mentoring students in developing and reevaluating their life trajectories. We take privileged students, like you, from UCLA (and abroad) to Camp Gonzales in Malibu to tutor, mentor, and counsel these underprivileged students. We also work with Felicitas and Gonzalo Mendez High School in Boyle Heights to tutor and mentor at-risk students. The goal of this tutoring is to help these students receive their high school diploma opening the doors to more educational opportunities.
