White House Visit From Director Shaun Donovan

YPI, the Mayor's Office, and other Los Angeles Promise Zone leaders hosted White House Office of Management & Budget Director Shaun Donovan and two members of his staff at the STEM Academy of Hollywood in early October.


Director Donovan participated in a roundtable discussion along with STEM Academy of Hollywood students, LA Promise Zone Young Ethnographers, and AmeriCorps VISTA members.

STEM students led improvements in the Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood for increased test scores and this year, 15 students were accepted to UCLA and Berkeley.

The cohort of 30 Young Ethnographers conducted 1,800 surveys in the LA Promise Zone to gather insights into perceptions and alignment of activities.
