32nd Street USC Magnet School

Mission: The LAUSD/USC Math, Science and Technology (MaST) High School began in 1994 as a collaboration between LAUSD, USC and the California National Guard (initial plans called for temporarily housing the school in National Guard facilities). The magnet was designed for college-bound students focusing on basic and applied sciences, math and technology. MaST opened – temporarily, it was thought – on the 32nd Street/USC School campus until another location could be found.

Arroyo Seco Foundation

Mission: The Arroyo Seco Foundation (ASF) was founded by Charles Lummis more than one hundred years ago to promote the preservation and promotion of the Arroyo Seco, one of Southern California's greatest natural treasures. After a lapse of many decades, the Arroyo Seco Foundation was revived in 1989 to continue that vision. Since then we have planted several thousand native trees in the Arroyo, participated in and led major Arroyo planning efforts, educated the public about the riches of the Arroyo, and most importantly worked to restore and enhance the natural splendor of the Arroyo for future generations. ASF advocates an integrated, harmonious approach to watershed and flood management, water conservation, habitat enhancement as well as the expansion of recreational opportunities. Through action projects, recreation and environmental awareness activities, ASF strives to involve the residents and organizations in our region in this tremendous enterprise. As a member of the California ReLeaf tree-planting network, ASF works to reforest the Arroyo Seco, the San Gabriel Mountains and the neighboring urban landscape with native shrubs and trees. The activities of the Arroyo Seco Foundation enable local residents and businesses to become directly involved in the restoration of the Arroyo Seco and in the recreational and environmental opportunities available.

Mission: Boxer Rescue Los Angeles (BRLA) believes that every boxer deserves a chance to live a happy life in a loving home. Abandoned or homeless Boxers will always find shelter, medical care, and ultimately a new home through the efforts of BRLA. By working with committed volunteers, local veterinarians, and trainers, we are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched forever homes. Working in conjunction with city and county groups BRLA strives to educate the public and help end animal overpopulation and needless suffering. The commitment to share the love of Boxers is never ending. We never discriminate on the basis of health or age. Our animals are evaluated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and receive any necessary medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.

Camino Nuevo Charter Academy - Burlington Site

Mission: Camino Nuevo Charter Academy was founded in August 2000 by Pueblo Nuevo Development, a nonprofit community development corporation in the MacArthur Park neighborhood west of downtown Los Angeles. The MacArthur Park neighborhood is one of the poorest and most densely populated neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Most of the residents are immigrants from Mexico and Central America. In 1992, Philip Lance began working with residents of the community to find ways to address the severe economic and social problems in the area. Over the past 10 years, several organizations and businesses grew out of this effort, including a thrift store, a worker-owned janitorial company, a non-profit community development corporation, a charter school, free clinic and a pre-school. Together, these organizations are providing children with outstanding and enriched educational opportunities as well as revitalizing this urban neighborhood and making it a safe and healthy place to live. The mission of Camino Nuevo Charter Academy is to educate students in a college preparatory program to be literate, critical thinkers, and independent problem solvers who are agents of social justice with sensitivity toward the world around them.

For our Summer 2009 Volunteer Project, we are excited to be taking two groups of 20 college-aged volunteers to the small coastal village of Canoa, Ecuador. During the months of June and August, Eco Surf Volunteers will build new playground equipment from recycled materials for the village s elementary school, as well as implement an English Language Educational Program where our volunteers will teach local children to speak English through arts and crafts. In return for their hard work, a group of Canoan surfers have offered to take our volunteers surfing at the best local surf spots. Volunteers with little to no surf experience are offered two hours daily surf instruction. Currently our North American sponsors include Quiksilver Foundation, Orange County Fire Authority, Ocean Minded, Victory Wetsuits, and Soleo Sun Block to name a few.

EAF works with Learning Links Centers (LLC)®, a socially responsible California real estate investment company (www.learninglinkscenters.com) whose goal is to be a leading private provider of residential rental units in low to moderate-income communities. Through the programs of EAF, LLC offers the residents of its buildings the opportunity to enhance their educational options. Additionally, it provides living assistance to teachers, in exchange for their tutoring and mentoring services. With its expertise in the real estate industry, the LLC management team locates, refurbishes, and manages the properties. By creating an environment in which the tenants are proud to be part of the building, EAF and LLC provide desirable housing, educational opportunities and demonstrate an interest in the future of the tenants and their children. Further, with the added incentive of educational opportunities, the buildings become desirable destinations for renters, which minimizes vacancy, rental default and vandalism rates, thereby helping to improve the community. </p>

EnrichLA

Mission: ENRICHLA is an Environmental Non-profit focused on adding edible school gardens to public schools. Our school gardens are inexpensive, promote community involvement, encourage respect for our delicate planet, act as outdoor classrooms, cheer up school campuses, help students build a good work ethic, and promote thoughtful and healthy eating habits. With gardens, the classroom is given local focus, tangible results, and involvement in inquiry-based education that can take place at each child’s own speed. School districts tend to be focused on providing bricks and mortar, books and paper, and technology. Garden projects work on bringing the abstract concepts alive (literally) so that children can truly see and understand what it is they are supposed to be learning. Many children would have very little contact with the natural world without school garden and habitat exposure, yet they are expected to understand it and manage it as adults. This makes school garden projects ever more important in the long run. Enrich LA is a different kind of non-profit. We are all volunteer, we have zero overhead and we get things done.
