TRANSFORMING EDUCATION: Cradle to Career

Collective input, collective action, collective impact

The L.A. Compact is a bold commitment to close the education and workforce gaps caused by systemic inequities and racism. Our collective actions transform systems and ensure every child and youth in L.A. County has equal access to both the tools and opportunities to be lifelong learners.

 

 

 

 

 

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 five ambitious, systemic goals for education reform in Los Angeles:

  1. All children are healthy and ready to succeed in school.
  2. All students graduate from high school.
  3. All students complete postsecondary education.
  4. Students of all ages acquire skills and knowledge to achieve career success.
  5. All children and young adults thrive socially and emotionally and contribute positively to the community.

About Us

The L.A. Compact is a bold commitment to close the education and workforce gaps caused by systemic inequities and racism. For more than a decade, the L.A. Compact has acted as a bridge builder - convening and mobilizing leaders from education, workforce, government, business, and labor organizations who believe that talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not.
