Compton Jr. Posse Mission:  Keeping Kids on Horses and Off the Streets

These are challenging times for everyone, especially for youth. The Compton Jr. Posse was developed to provide inner-city youth with year round after school alternatives to the lure of gang and drug lifestyles. For over 20 years, the Compton Jr. Posse has given inner city kids hope by teaming them with horses. Through these equestrian activities, youth develop responsibility, discipline and self-esteem. Students learn to set and achieve both academic and career goals. There can be no better investment in their future.
