LOS ANGELES, CA – The YEL Program in association with “Play Well, Live Better!” will be hosting their 9th annual community Health & Wellness Fair Saturday, August 2 in Los Angeles. The block party will be held at 3747 West Boulevard beginning at 10 a.m.

The event will provide access to health workshops, such as disease preventative services including immunizations, as well as medical and dental check-ups and access to free and reduced cost health insurance for community members that have been unable to access and/or qualify. The fair also aims to inform youth and their families about the importance of health and wellness at all ages through games, interactive activities, panels, and seminars. The fair will provide free school supplies, nutritional and home-cooked meals to all attendees as well, provided on behalf of the Youth Edutainment League (YEL Program).

Founded by Darius Farrelly, The Youth Edutainment League or YEL Program was created after Mr. Farrelly observed youth in the area that were disenfranchised, disconnected and struggling to find a place in their individual communities. Deciding to take the initiative to bridge the gap, Mr. Farrelly created the YEL Program, an interactive after-school workshop that interfaces with young adults to help expedite possible career opportunities in areas that they are interested in; such as sports and entertainment.

Additionally, each year, live performances by some local and celebrity talent grace the stage of the Block Party to provide an exclusive soundtrack to the event. This year performances will include music by the Wylde Bunch, Antonique Smith, Justin Hunt, La Fonz and Tia P, as well as stand-up comedy from G-Thang, and Kevin Tate will serve as the live entertainment for the duration of the fair.
