Now, more than ever, young people need our help. They have been expected to adapt to a rapidly changing environment that has forced them to learn from their homes, stunted their ability to get summer employment, forced them to reconsider going to college, and disconnected them from onramps into high-growth careers. Low-income youth and youth of color are most disproportionately affected. They are more likely to lack digital devices and internet connection to benefit from virtual learning opportunities; they are more likely to have a caretaker that lost employment or is a low-income essential worker; and, they are more likely to reconsider going to college because of financial constraints.

Consider supporting UNITE-LA’s efforts to provide underserved youth in Los Angeles with accessible college advising programming, paid summer work experiences, opportunities to connect with professionals from high-growth industries, and college scholarships.
