Join UNITE-LA as we celebrate 25 years of cradle-through-career collaboration and impact in Greater Los Angeles and beyond. To commemorate this milestone and promote UNITE-LA's work to ensure educational and economic justice, we invite you to celebrate with us and show your support through a single or recurring donation.
Through integrated programming, systems change efforts and policy/advocacy, UNITE-LA has increased access to quality early childhood education, improved college access and success, developed pathways into high-growth, living wage careers, and advanced greater economic mobility for individuals from historically marginalized communities. Through the generosity of our supporters, we have:
- Served more than 600,000 youth and young adults
- Helped 323,000 students apply for more than $1.2 billion in free financial aid through Free Application for Federal Student Aid and California Dream Act completion workshops
- Supported the development and implementation of the L.A. College Promise
- Championed career pathways, providing 25,000 high school and community college students with work-based learning and paid work experience
- Secured 40,000 job opportunities for qualified young adults
- Launched the L.A. Compact in 2008 - a nationally renowned collaborative of L.A.'s most prominent leaders to collectively close education and workforce gaps caused by systemic inequities and racism
- Co-developed and launched the L.A. Region K-16 Collaborative to align K-12, community college, four-year and workforce systems for streamlined pathways into high growth careers for students of color
- Advocated for the successful passage of Universal Transition Kindergarten, expanded Paid Family Leave, Prop 47 and the California Dream Act
