What We Do


Preparing Los Angeles students for success in College, Career, and Life.

The LA Promise Fund is a unique hybrid, operating programs in partnership with Los Angeles Unified School District at two traditional, comprehensive high schools and a middle school, as well as operating two charter schools in South LA.

Further amplifying its impact, the LA Promise Fund runs high profile, far-reaching programs and engagement opportunities available to students and teachers across Los Angeles County.

This structure allows for both high touch, intensive supports on school sites, inside and outside of the traditional district system, while also serving students through high profile, innovative programs that are available to students countywide.


The LA Promise Fund places emphasis on meeting each student’s academic, social, physical, and emotional needs.

Schools in the LA Promise Fund family serve as the hub of wraparound services to support the whole child and family.

Over 70 specially screened partners providing over 200 services work together to address the comprehensive needs of the school community.

The LA Promise Fund rigorously screens all potential partners and manages partners to clear service agreements.

As a result, partners deliver the highest quality programs to students and families in the LA Promise Fund Neighborhood.
