East Los Angeles

East Los Angeles has a rich history of community involvement, activism, leadership and empowerment. It is known for being interconnected, “where everyone knows everyone.” As a Best Start community, the potential exists to continue that engagement and build partnerships that foster community involvement on many levels so young children can grow up safe, happy and healthy.

The East Los Angeles community leadership is described as “having a strong history, a track record of community leadership and being steady and hardworking.” School staff are seen as very active and passionate about the community, and are often individuals who grew up in the community and are invested in its success.
