    Young Ethnographers: fostering youth development through the Promise Zone Survey

    The Los Angeles Promise Zone Initiative led by Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office tests innovative ideas for neighborhood revitalization. This project will make LA the “best place to connect” by providing Promise Zone youth with a summer job as Young Ethnographers. Over the course of 8 weeks next summer, they will engage their neighbors in an assessment of quality of life to guide decision-making within local government and measure how the Promise Zone is improving lives.
