TRANSFORMING EDUCATION: Cradle to Career

Collective input, collective action, collective impact

The L.A. Compact is a bold commitment by Los Angeles leaders from the education, business, government, labor and nonprofit sectors to transform education outcomes from cradle to career, ensuring that today’s youth have the skills necessary to compete and succeed in a 21st century global workforce.

 

Our Approach

The L.A. Compact is founded in a shared belief that no single program or organization can singlehandedly solve the complex, large-scale education and workforce readiness challenges facing our region.  By breaking away from their traditional silos and by utilizing a collective impact approach, the L.A. Compact brings together cross-sector leaders in a shared commitment to achieve three ambitious, systemic goals for education reform in Los Angeles:

  1. All students graduate from high school
  2. All students have access to and are prepared for success in college
  3. All students have access to pathways to sustainable jobs and careers
