On Saturday, March 25th, APCH teens in our #GirlPower group hosted their very first GirlPower Empowerment Day. The day started off with a delicious meal catered by our friends at The Peninsula Beverly Hills and was followed by an incredible panel of inspirational women, including Nancy Kupka, HR Director at the Peninsula BH, Jennifer Weg, Marketing Executive for Netflix and our 2017 GirlPower Award honoree, and Dr. Meschellia Johnson, President of SLA NOW. Each panelist spoke about her path to success and the challenges they faced along the way. Later in the day, attendees relaxed with some fun yoga classes, courtesy of Eat Play Heal, facials, courtesy of Herbalife, and Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes led by Carlos Gomez. Thank you to everyone who came out in support of our first #GirlPowerEmpowermentDay and made this truly a day of empowerment and inspiration for our teens! #APCHEmpowersWomen #Leaders #Inspiration #TogetherWeRise

APCH #StaffHighlight: Meet Gilbert Radillo, Associate Director of Corporate and Community Engagement at #APCH! Gilbert has been with APCH for over 8 years and is always on top of his game - from wrangling in hundreds of volunteers for our events, coordinating the pick up and distribution of donated food, equipment, clothing, toys and other goods for our various giveaway programs to securing strong and meaningful partnerships with local agencies and organizations. Look quick because you just might miss him! He is always on the go, either on daddy duty or tabling at an event - sometimes even both! Thank you for your hard work and commitment to our community, Gilbert! #APCHStaff #JoinTheFamily
