A Place Called Home (APCH) proposes to serve Opportunity Youth (OY) over the coming year; Opportunity Youth are defined as those facing the most serious obstacles to success, including involvement in the juvenile justice and/or foster care systems.
APCH will partner with Da Vinci Schools to offer RISE High at APCH, an on-site charter school designed to support OY in finishing their high school education. APCH will serve OY through a new programming component called “IMPACT,” which stands for Individual Member Programming and Counseling Track, will operate on Saturdays and provide targeted support, including job readiness classes, nutrition, and athletics, for OY.
"A Place Called Home is where we build bridges to a better future. It is a safe space filled with opportunities we wouldn't otherwise have."
“Through supporting APCH's IMPACT program and RISE High School partnership, Ready to Rise is investing in safety, support and opportunity so hundreds of the highest needs youth in L.A. can find their way and reach their potential. Young people are emerging stronger, healthier, and headed for good jobs and higher education, which makes the world a better place for us all.”
