The CITY, recognized also as Community Inspiring Today’s Youth or “TCP” is a non-profit, 501(c)3 tax exempt organization based in Los Angeles, CA. We offer a comprehensive, hands-on business development program, teaching micro-entrepreneurship.

The CITY offers a unique and empowering 46 week micro-entrepreneurship program. While enrolled, students work on developing their product or service under the leadership of an industry professional. Instead of teaching them to take these skills and enter the trade or work for another company, we then provide them with the experience of starting their very own small business.

The CITY operates by and holds firmly to these organizational values: honesty, compassion, equality, communication, acceptance, accountability, recognition, and a desire for life-long learning and growth.

Currently The CITY accepts applications from highly motivated young adults from the ages of 14-24 years of age. Exceptions may be made. Half of our enrollment is reserved for youth offenders, re-entering incarcerated and probationed youth. There are no educational requirements.
