LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a global nutrition company, today is proud to be hosting the City Year Los Angeles’ 10th Anniversary Opening Day Ceremony Champions Breakfast.
City Year is an education-focused non-profit that unites young people (ages 17-25) of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service in underserved communities to help students succeed in school and stay on-track to high school graduation. Founded nearly 30 years ago in Boston, the organization has expanded operations to 28 cities across the country as well as programs in foreign cities.
“Herbalife Nutrition is proud to once again partner with City Year and support its proven and effective program of providing students with the resources and tools they need for success,” said Alan Hoffman, executive vice president, Global Corporate Affairs, Herbalife. “As a Company that has built its business by providing communities throughout the country and the world with health education and economic opportunity, we understand the profound impact that personal interaction and a community-focused approach to tackling problems can have.”
Each September, City Year swears in new AmeriCorps members who provide academic support before, during and after school to at-risk L.A. youth. Today’s Champions Breakfast will be hosted at Herbalife Nutrition corporate offices, and follows the opening day ceremony during which 500 guests will hear from California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León and other local leaders.
“We are grateful to Herbalife Nutrition for its continued support and for hosting our Champions Breakfast this morning,” said Erin Ross, managing director of development at City Year Los Angeles. “This is an exciting day as we welcome our 10th corps of young idealists committed to helping the students of Los Angeles reach their full potential. City Year is a public-private partnership and it is because of investments from companies like Herbalife Nutrition and others who share our vision that we are able to impact so many students’ lives.”
