With only 3 out of 10 students in South LA attending college every year, our mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged youth by giving them positive alternatives and leadership skills to stay in school, increase academic grades, prevent teenage pregnancy, gang involvement, incarceration and ultimately gain acceptance into college or vocational education.
This year SoLa awarded four South LA high school seniors scholarships towards their university tuition.
SoLa Scholars are selected from tenants family members and tenant-related teens applying for a two- or four-year accredited program that demonstrate excellence in community service, academics, and social impact/service.
