New Earth Arts & Leadership Center

The Transformation Begins

The New Earth Arts and Leadership Center opened in August 2015 in Culver City, California. The center is a comprehensive re-entry center that includes educational programs, a career-training center, computer lab, music studio, case management, and other services focused on life skills and leadership.

New Earth YouthBuild and John Muir Charter School of California:

In partnership with YouthBuild USA and John Muir Charter School of CA, New Earth includes comprehensive high school diploma programming. The program serves up to 100 young people aged 16-25.

The center serves as an alternative to incarceration for youth who have been in and out of the system, a supportive academic site for youth who currently reside in a group home or are in foster care, an educational site for youth who have been suspended or expelled or dropped out of high school, and a creative progressive experiential model for those who are in need of a high school diploma, vocational development, and other wrap around services.

Each day begins at 8:30am and ends at 3:30pm.  Admission is free and enrollment is on a rolling basis.
