2023-2024 Lakers Youth Foundation YOU Grant 

Congratulations to School on Wheels! on winning the Lakers Youth Foundation November 2023 YOU Grant Contest!  

Mission Statement: 

Since 1993, the mission of School on Wheels has never wavered: to enhance educational opportunities for children experiencing homelessness from kindergarten through twelfth grade throughout Southern California. 

Funding Project: 

This project aims to provide students experiencing homelessness, attending our Skid Row Learning Center, with enriching and educational experiences during the summer months. The project aspires to bridge the gap between their opportunities and those of their peers by offering weekly curricula and engaging field trips to museums, science centers, and other educational institutions. Ultimately, we hope to empower students experiencing homelessness with a holistic and enriching educational experience, fostering a love for learning and providing them with opportunities for personal and academic growth.

Please check back in January for another Lakers Youth Foundation YOU Grant opportunity!
