    Launched in L.A.

    System-impacted youth are empowered and equipped for their future through our program, but how can we ensure that our graduates are connected to safe and supportive avenues for continued learning or employment? Our pilot program, "Launched in L.A." is seeking to develop this pathway for the youth who graduate from our program. Through vetted community and county connections, as well as scholarship opportunities, we walk alongside youth as they transition from our program into independence, providing support every step of the way.
