boyleheightsgroupcopy.jpgBeginning the fall of 2012, College Track welcomes its sixth center in Los Angeles, CA. In partnership with will.i.am’s i.am angel foundation and The California Endowment, i.am College Track – Boyle Heights serves 60 students from Roosevelt High School's Academy of Medical and Health Sciences and the Math, Science, and Technology Magnet Academy, and will serve nearly 200 high school students in the area during the next four years. The wide-ranging programs at the center equip students with the resources needed to get into and graduate from college, learn marketable and employable skills in the arts and digital media, and guide students towards the emerging careers of tomorrow in science, technology, engineering and math. Students and staff work under the leadership of Site Director Tina Kim to transform the Boyle Heights neighborhood into a place where college is an expectation, not the exception, for all youth.
