About us

Our Mission & Vision:

Established in 1993 by a Harvard honors graduate, City Scholars® Foundation is a privately funded, non-profit corporation. Partnering with executive volunteers, our mission is to train and support leaders of education non-profits that help hundreds of thousands of low-income youth throughout the Greater Los Angeles region stay in school, out of trouble and on track to a brighter future.

We are committed to building and promoting our tuition-free City Scholars® Fellowship as an innovative, high-impact model of non-profit leadership development and community partnership that inspires similar efforts in urban communities across the nation.

Why Our Work Matters:

To achieve against the odds, low-income youth depend upon the academic support, mentoring and creative enrichment quality education non-profits provide. In turn, these much-needed organizations depend for their success upon highly-motivated, extremely competent and well-connected leaders who, as demand increases and resources shrink, need more than a heart for helping low-income youth to keep the lights on and the doors open.

Engaged in a challenging and often lonely job, non-profit leaders need, but often cannot afford nor find through one program, the practical business education, personalized leadership support and unparalleled networking opportunities with grantmakers, executives and community leaders that our City Scholars® Fellowship has provided tuition-free since 2007 for education non-profit CEOs serving low-income youth where the need is greatest throughout the Greater Los Angeles region.
