Who We Are

Our Mission

To improve academic and personal success for at-promise youth through collaboration and innovative approaches to mentoring and learning.

Our Story

Long Beach BLAST was founded in 2000 by attorney and youth advocate, Jean Egan in response to the Long Beach Strategic Improvement Plan. The results of the plan indicated that Long Beach lacked a consistent, citywide focus on improving the well-being of the city’s youth, which includes a large number of at-risk youth.

Long Beach BLAST

Long Beach BLAST was established to bridge the gap for students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged by giving them the opportunity to engage in productive activities, meet state and national academic standards, and become future-thinking, college and career ready individuals. BLAST partners with local schools in Long Beach and reaches out to connect a positive role model with youth who are facing adversity through our Academic Mentoring Program and Bridge to Success ProgramSince inception, BLAST has inspired over 20,000 at-promise youth.

Our Impact

Your gifts of time, talent, and treasure will go directly towards meeting the academic and mentorship needs of at-promise youth.
