The LA Promise Zone Initiative is a collective
impact project involving leaders from government, local institutions,
non-profits and community organizations to target resources to
create jobs, boost public safety, improve public education and stimulate better
housing opportunities for our residents and neighborhoods. We do this by identifying and implementing innovative
solutions to problems that affect our neighborhoods.
The City of
Los Angeles is the lead agency that oversees the Promise Zone Initiative; the Youth
Policy Institute is our lead implementation
partner. Almost 50 local organizations work together to
meet our goals and 40 more have signed on as supporters of the initiative.
