LA Promise Fund

LA Promise Fund works to increase educational equity through a network of programs that prepare Los Angeles County's students for academic, professional, and personal success.

Opening Doors, Closing Opportunity Disparities

LA Promise Fund

LA Promise Fund's vision is to close the opportunity gap for students in South Los Angeles and beyond. Its approach is unique and multifaceted: LA Promise Fund partners with public schools in the Los Angeles region, working closely with students and administrators to elevate every level of student success. At their schools, LA Promise Fund operates several programs, including Go To College. Go To College helps foster a schoolwide college-going culture and works to expand access to higher education through counseling, student ambassadors, an annual college fair, and visits to two and four-year campuses.

Further, Promise Parents staffs each school with a Community/Parent Representative that works in tandem with the Parent and Family Center to reduce barriers to parent engagement. In addition to other in-school services – such as before and after-school activities and health and wellness programs – LA Promise Fund provides an array of key services throughout LA County. From connecting high school students to internships, cultivating interest in biology and biotechnology, and expanding arts education, LA Promise Fund's wraparound services support the academic, emotional, physical, and social needs of both the child and the family.
