Gardena Senior High School


Children Youth and Family Collaborative

Advancement through Opportunity and Knowledge

My name is Matt Cabrera and I am the CYFC Youth Education Specialist at Gardena High School. CYFC is a nationally recognized organization servicing over 4,000 foster and probation youth. CYFC is a non-profit organization that takes a "holistic approach to expand the academic and social development of foster and probation youth through academic case management, intervention and remediation, mentoring and support services ." We complete this goal by offering a free day tutoring program, as well as an after school program.

I understand that your role in the students' school life is critical, and I am here to join and assist you in any way possible. If you suspect a child has an open DCFS/DPO case or have any questions or concerns regarding our program, please do not hesitate to contact me. My office is located in: C4, or feel free to contact me via the school phone at ext: 337, or through
