Back to School with Venice Community Housing's Study Lounge
August 24, 2018
It's officially back-to-school season in our Study Lounge program! The ability for VCH to provide year-round academic support to disadvantaged families is vital to breaking the cycle of poverty. The Study Lounge program empowers low-income, minority youth to succeed in school, transition into higher education and stable career paths, and to become leaders and positive change agents in their communities.
VCH partners with UCLA's TEACH program to offer individualized, year-long academic tutoring and healthy living curriculum to Study Lounge participants. UCLA students provide participants with one-on-one, focused attention and inspire them to new levels of achievement.
To provide easy access to local families, Study Lounge operates at two sites, located at VCH's Washington Courts Apartments in Mar Vista and Broadway Elementary in Venice.
