DRAGG (Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti)
I can’t tell you enough how much I love this organization! DRAGG or Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti is a 501c3 non-profit automotive after-school program located in Oxnard, California.
I just love this innovative afterschool program in the City of Oxnard where Police Officers and people from the automotive industry mentor local high school students. At-risk youth are provided a viable alternative to a life of gangs and graffiti through lessons learned at DRAGG that range from basic automotive repair to creative car customization. It’s a new spin on an old idea; keep the youth focused on the future with positive influences and they will stay out of trouble. The program empowers individuals to make positive life choices, offering opportunities for continued education and employment.
