Developed in 1996, the Team Beverly Hills program currently has over 750 Alumni members. As more residents are educated through the Team Beverly Hills program, the positive results benefit the entire community as Alumni continue to seek out opportunities to participate and assist existing civic and community organizations and agencies. The long-term benefits embody an ever-expanding network and resource of community leaders, as well as assist in building a stronger bridge of mutual trust and respect between the community and its government. Many graduates volunteer at City events, sit on committees, currently serve or have served on City commissions, assist with neighborhood projects, and offer invaluable service to local non-profit organizations.
