    Eyeglasses Fuel Student Success in STEAM!

    How can students succeed in STEAM if they have poor vision? Though 1 in 4 children naturally need glasses, 95% in underserved areas do not have them, including an estimated 250,000 children in Los Angeles. With 2050 funding, Vision To Learn (VTL) would provide 500 eye exams and 400 prescription glasses for LA children in need. Children in under resourced communities have fallen far behind academically during the pandemic. VTL is a proven intervention to enable them to catch up.
