TRANS4M / i.am.Boyle Heights

When will.i.am was young, Boyle Heights was a thriving industrial area. Today, it's an industrial desert. Will's dream is to transform the neighborhood and the world—to connect talented people and people with skills to build businesses and help give people pride, direction and the opportunity to foster growth and a healthy future. Says Will, "We need to rebuild America for those who dream big and have a sense of community. That's what we're trying to do."
