COMPTON JR. POSSE 8th Annual Fundraiser Gala

Compton Jr. Posse (CJP) was created 27 years ago for inner-city youth to provide a year round after school program using equestrian activities to inspire youth to reach their personal, academic and career goals – a powerful alternative to the equally powerful lure of gang and drug lifestyles.

We have helped three generations of youth go college, the military and into business ownership. CJP’s award-winning program has given inner city kids a framework for success by teaming them with horses and highly skilled instructors such as Olympic Gold Medalist Will Simpson. Your investment in CJP Programs helps develop CJP youth into leaders of tomorrow.

Our recent program goal accomplishments include:

  • In 2009, established the first inner-city equestrian team to compete in the Interscholastic Equestrian League (IEL). This team sport helps our students become eligible for equestrian scholarships at some of the top colleges in the country.
  • In 2010, launched a Mounted Jr. Ranger Program in conjunction with the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.
  • In 2011, awarded the California Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness Silver Medal Award.
  • In 2012, CJP Jr Rangers represented the USA at the 7th World Ranger Congress in Arusha, Tanzania and in
  • 2014 at the International Conference of Outdoor Interpretation in Korea.
  • In 2013, our first CJP rider competed in the College Preparatory Horse Show in Palm Beach, Florida.
  • In 2014, CJP provided service to over 1500 inner city youth, and scholarships to 12 CJP youth in college.

Since 1988, CJP has operated primarily on local community volunteers and in-kind services. Our number one fundraising goal is to meet the need of the ever-growing high demand for CJP services. You can help by donating to our annual fundraising campaign. Please review the attached forms for your opportunities to become a sponsor. We are also seeking silent and live auction items. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. On behalf of the Compton Jr. Posse children, we thank you for your support. Your investment in our Olympic Gold programs is an investment in their future and an investment in tomorrow’s world communities.

With Appreciation, Mayisha Akbar, Founder & Executive Director
