PURA AVENIDA is a means to celebrate and preserve the authenticity and genuine nature of The Avenue while bringing about a broader scope of experiences and life paths to its young people. It honors the rawness and realness of the area and its people (the PUREness) yet it also desires to be a place and program where a young person can explore other life pursuits and “avenues”. Pura Avenida offers skill based learning opportunities, career technical training, and mentorships. It is a safe space to create and be creative, to ask questions and to learn entrepreneurship. Pura Avenida recycles leaders, using students and residents who have been trained in high-tech manufacturing equipment to teach others.
It offers job opportunities, start-up business opportunities, and carves out paths (avenues) to pursue higher education all while maintaining place and purpose in the community for its participants.
The instruction of equipment is done in the Avenue community. It is free to eligible Avenue youth. It celebrates that each individual of the community is a valued and contributing member of the community who possesses unique and authentic abilities. It is training the young people of today for future opportunities and avenues. It is Pura Avenida!
