El Nido’s Junior Board invites you to come spend a fun day in the park with El Nido families for our first ever Kickball Picnic (or, as we are affectionately calling it, our KICKNIC)!
Inspired by El Nido’s mission to empower families in low-income communities of Los Angeles County, the Junior Board encourages you to come meet and spend time with the amazing youth and families supported by El Nido’s services.
Come play a friendly game of kickball with the students enrolled in El Nido’s Gang Prevention program and participate in a number of other fun-filled outdoor games (Giant Jenga, Corn Hole, etc.). The KICKNIC will take place at Richie Valens Recreation Center in Pacoima. All family, friends, and dogs are welcome–the more the merrier!
Food will be provided by the youth of El Nido’s Culinary Academy, so brace yourselves for some BBQ deliciousness! For its part, the Junior Board will be baking the night away to provide you with a touch of sweetness at our bake sale. If you would like to contribute some baked treats, please feel free to bring a batch!
The event is a fabulous opportunity to learn about El Nido and we hope you can join us.

About El Nido
El Nido works across Los Angeles to protect children, provide educational enrichment, and lift families out of poverty. El Nido (the Nest) was founded in 1925 by the National Council of Jewish Women to provide meals and respite care to undernourished and neglected girls. In the 1960s, the organization expanded to include residential shelters, and offered guidance for abused, abandoned and runaway girls. By 1979, El Nido became formally independent and had grown to include both boys and girls. As the incidence of child abuse, school failure, youth crime and teen pregnancy increased, El Nido’s focus evolved to community-based prevention and early intervention. Today, services are provided at schools, homes, and centers across Los Angeles County.
