City Youth Exposure Takes Students to Southern California Power Plant

A partner at TEAM Services Corporation in Los Angeles, André Farr is a seasoned sports and entertainment executive with more than two decades of experience. Outside of his professional activities, André Farr supports the work of several youth-oriented organizations and serves as chairman of the board of directors of City Youth Exposure, a Southern California-based nonprofit that creates positive experiences for children living in inner-city communities.

One of City Youth Exposure’s recent events took 10 students to Southern California Edison’s Mountainview Generating Station in Redlands. While there, the seventh- and eighth-graders from La Tijera K-8 School learned about power generation and the history of the Mountainview station, which is the first power plant to be built in the Los Angeles Basin in the last 30 years.

The small group of students was also given insight into the plant’s efficiency and how it manages to distribute power to businesses and private residences throughout Southern California. In addition, the students explored career opportunities in the fields of science and engineering. The one-of-a-kind experience was made possible through the generous support of City Youth Exposure board members and Southern California Edison employees.
