Everything’s Sunny in Los Angeles
Lots of good vibes (and good resources) flowing to sunny southern California Promise Neighborhoods!
Boyle Heights received a $600,000 AT&T Aspire grant for their Promise Neighborhood, which will assist their academic strategies.
Youth Policy Institute has been feeling the love as well! They’re going to be part of a new $2.3 million initiative to bring free wireless internet access to the residents of Pacoima.
What else? Oh, boy!
A $12 million federal Workforce Innovation Fund grant for Los Angeles; two Citi grants for $50,000 each to improve financial literacy and asset building for college savings and entry and prepare students for college; a $54,000 grant from the National Coucil of La Raza to support and expand YPI’s Health Careers program; an IBM award of $52,000 for strategic planning services; a Verizon award of $20,000 for STEM programs in YPI schools; and so much more!
Congratulations to our LA sites!
