    Help SEEDLA Students Get to School

    SEED students will come from all corners of LA County, arriving to school every Sunday evening and departing for home each Friday afternoon. In the majority of cases, vans are a lifeline for students to be able to attend SEED as their families do not have the means to provide transportation. Also, the vans serve as an extension of SEED programming by creating opportunities to explore and engage an array of interests never thought possible. A grant from LA2050 will provide multiple passenger vans for SEED students this fall.
