Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of UPLA is to help our neighbors take their place as agents of their own destiny in the civic life of Los Angeles, whatever that takes. Math skills, language skills, job skills, critical thinking ability, community-building, nutrition, healthy eating—whatever. The neighborhood we serve is in an intensely diverse, impoverished part of Los Angeles, one of the most densely populated areas in the state of California. To serve them, we have formed this organization, and we are now working to raise its profile and, simultaneously, to raise money to support and grow the operation.

Building on our foundation offering education, nutrition and health programs, UPLA’s plan for the future is to add programs that serve both children and adults, promoting math skills for children, English language competency for adults, writing and critical thinking skills for older students, and exercise and nutrition for adults and families.

Our organization has several dedicated volunteers and paid staff who have a wide range of skills and abilities, including: math expertise (a CPA who manages our math program); English language competency (multi-lingual professor is a volunteer instructor); most of our staff, volunteers, and leadership team are bilingual (English / Spanish); writing expertise (professional writer is an instructor); social services management expertise (decades of program leadership experience among our leadership team).
