Children's Institute began in 1906 as the Big Sister League, created to help troubled young women in Los Angeles. In the 1960s, the mission of the organization began to expand, and in 1980, the Big Sister League became Children's Institute International (CII). Today, CII serves Los Angeles youth made vulnerable by family and community violence and poverty. CII offers a network of services aimed at combatting a variety of issues facing Los Angeles youth, including mental health, early care and education, child welfare, family support, and youth development. This programming aims to provide youth with the support and resources they need to overcome the many barriers associated with violence and poverty, clearing a path to academic and personal success. Additionally, CII's Leadership Center trains more than 9,000 professionals every year in the field of children and family services, ensuring the longevity of this critical work.
