Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Our vision is that every student in Los Angeles’ public schools receives the supports he or she needs in order to develop the emotional, social and learning skills required to graduate high school ready for meaningful employment or higher education.
