Our goal is to prepare and place our home-grown talent in Los Angeles County, while providing a national model for other regional economies to adopt similar strategies. This partnership will allow us to create a think-tank that can distill the best practices of implementing policies, systems integration and adoption while allowing student innovation and inclusive voice to be seen, heard and nurtured along the way.
