Tours of Homeboy Industries are available Monday thru Friday at 9am, 11am, and 2pm
Each month an average of 1,000 people tour Homeboy Industries headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Our iconic building sits across near historic Chinatown and is steps away from the Metro Station. We encourage you to book a tour to meet program participants (Trainees) get a first hand understanding of the kinship, services and social enterprises that make our organization so unique.
Your tour will be 45 minutes – 1 hour and is a unique trainee-led experience that consists of a walk-thru of our organization and a shared story from your tour guide. Your group will gain a better understanding and discover the sense of community that exists for the men and women who come through our doors seeking to leave their gang involvement behind and find hope for their futures.
Because our visitor’s schedule fills up more than 60 days in advance, we encourage you to make your visiting arrangements ahead of time. Please note tours are NOT offered on the weekend as our organization is only opened Monday through Friday.
