Summer of Joy
We made a difference this summer.
For the first time ever, every Los Angeles student in a low-income community had access to a free summer program in their neighborhood as a result of our collaboration with LAUSD and over 70 nonprofits.
LAUSD opened schools in low-income communities for summer programs. The Recovery Fund provided resources to nonprofit providers to operate programs on these LAUSD sites and improve program quality. As a result. 30,000 children benefited from free in-person summer enrichment at one of the 500 LAUSD, charter school, and community-based nonprofit sites.
With the support of the L.A. Education Recovery Fund, we are able to provide more children access to the educational, enrichment, and emotional services they need to recover.

Summer Sites Operating
The Boys and Girls Club always makes me feel welcome and has always been there for me whenever I needed them. There was a time when I had nothing to eat at home and The Club provided a whole meal for me. As a member attending summer camp for the first time, I am having so much fun!
