All Peoples Community Center
Sabbatical, 1999

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.
