Our youth programs are designed to inspire South Los Angeles youth to see possibility and opportunity in their lives. All programs are provided free of charge to the community. To enroll your child in a SoLa I CAN program, please click the link below.
We provide opportunities and resources to build resumes and become college ready. Our College Bound program includes university tours, summer immersion on college campuses, academic tutoring, SAT prep and guidance through the entire application and ﬁnancial aid process.
We partner with financial institutions such as First Republic Bank to teach classes on the fundamentals of personal financial success, including banking, saving, budgeting, investing, and more.
Like our motto says, “If you can see it, you can be it!” Our “I CAN Be…” program strives to expose our youth to new and interesting career paths they may not be aware of. We prioritize ﬁnding speakers and companies run by Black and Latinx entrepreneurs to help our youth see the possibility in their lives.
