• Youth Policy Institute and Los Angeles Promise Neighborhoods support schools in high-poverty communities to become vibrant centers of opportunity and excellence.


    LOS ANGELES PROMISE NEIGHBORHOOD is a cradle-to-college-and-career approach to closing the educational opportunity gap. The U.S. Department of Education has awarded a $30 million five-year grant to Youth Policy Institute (YPI) starting January 2017, one of six in the nation. In collaboration with the City and County of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District, YPI and 63 partners are building a pipeline of much-needed wraparound services for students, including early childhood development, social-emotional support, academic support, and college and career coaching to ensure pathways out of poverty for youth and their families.
