Aaron Valencia's nonprofit, the Lost Angels Children's Project, is an after-school program focusing on classic car restoration. Valencia, a mechanic in Lancaster, CA, about 70 miles north of Los Angeles, wanted to give at-risk kids the chance he never had: to learn a trade and have a positive focus. His efforts landed him on the 2017 list of top 10 CNN Heroes.
