SoLa I Can Foundation launched the CORE Scholarship program, an educational and workforce development initiative in partnership with the Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation and other leading philanthropists to provide 200 scholarships to South LA residents who have been furloughed or laid-off due to COVID-19.
You can help the community achieve vocational degrees in healthcare and technology in an effort to create jobs and pathways to economic advancement for South LA’s predominantly Black and Latinx community.
CORE Fund is more than just a scholarship award for 200 South LA residents who have been impacted by COVID-19. It's a holistic approach to ending intergenerational poverty by providing wrap-around services that support educational and employment advancement.
Volunteer your time supporting the administrative work of the CORE Scholarship program such as researching community partners, entering data, organizing files, developing profiles, scheduling interviews, and other clerical tasks as they arise.
SoLa I CAN Foundation is built on a simple premise, "If you can’t see it, you can’t be it." I CAN’s goal is to end generational poverty and housing insecurity by providing programming, mentorship, and a sense of community resulting in increased academic performance, inspired positive identity development, college acceptance, and graduation.
Our goal is to introduce South LA youth to people, places, and opportunities they would not normally or easily have access to in their daily lives, all at no cost to them. We believe that by doing this, it will help break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, unlock their full potential, and develop youth into morally grounded, academically accomplished leaders. Our four program areas are: College Readiness and Access, Financial Literacy, Career Awareness, and Wellness and New Horizons. Career Awareness : South LA youth are exposed to diverse professions giving them free first-hand career experience. Annual SoLa Scholarship : SoLa Impact and it’s affiliated non-profit, The I Can Foundation, awards scholarships to SoLa tenants and residents of South LA annually. Free Virtual Programming: SoLa I Can is offering free virtual programming to students affected by the school closure. Check out our website for more info! Tech and E-Sports Center: SoLa Impact and the SoLa I CAN Foundation will open a Technology and E-Sports Development Center at The Beehive in South LA in December 2020. The Tech Center will be free to the public and offer music production, video production, coding, graphic design, e-sports, software training classes, and much more!
