    C5LA Alumni Support and College Persistence Program

    C5LA serves kids at high risk for school dropout due to poverty, precarious living circumstances, and prevalence of gangs in their neighborhoods. Our 5-year program of leadership camps, college/career prep, and service learning helps students realize their true potential. C5LA gets at-risk youth to college; however, many are unable to stay the course. Funding from LA2050 will enable C5LA to implement college retention initiatives for this vulnerable population to persist and succeed in college.
