Heart of Los Angeles provides a structured pipeline of exceptional academic support and enrichment programs from elementary through high school into college and career success.

HOLA’s youth attend overburdened inner-city schools and live in communities that are heavily impacted by illegal drug trafficking and gang violence. Many are children hindered by poverty. HOLA seeks to break this cycle by providing a structured pipeline through our SmartStart Elementary School Program, Bridges Middle and High School Program, and College and Career Success Program.
