Saundra Bryant has been Executive Director of All Peoples Community Center since 1983. Founded in 1942, the Center is located two miles south of downtown Los Angeles in a neighborhood that has seen dramatic demographic and social change. Bryant became intimately involved with the Center as a child, when she was placed in its day care program at the age of two. She returned to the Center as an adult after her graduate education in Tennessee and a position as a casework specialist with the California Youth Authority. Today, the Center’s many services include day care, ESL/literacy classes, supplemental food distribution, job training, after-school tutoring and sports, a youth summer camp, and retired and senior volunteer placement.
