In 2016, we partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) to empower thousands of young Angelenos to pursue higher education regardless of cost.
The initiative, known as LA College Promise, has gone on to serve over 20,000 students and help increase enrollment of first-time LAUSD graduates attending LACCD by 56%.
Now, in collaboration with LACCD and the Mayor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, we’re launching LA College Promise Works (LACP Works), a new jobs readiness program that will provide wrap-around career services and paid opportunities for LA College Promise students.
LACP Works provides LACP students with a dedicated team of career coaches to help them navigate on-campus career resources, as well as jobs programs through the City and County of Los Angeles and beyond. The program will also offer workshops and training opportunities to help students graduate with the professional skills and knowledge to pursue the careers of their dreams.
