At the Social Justice Learning Institute, we are dedicated to improving the education, health, and well being of youth and communities of color by empowering them to enact social change through research, training, and community mobilization.
We envision communities where education empowers individuals to use their agency for the purpose of improving each other’s lives.
Our goals are simple. We work to:
1619 Students served through Urban Scholars
250 Healthy Lifestyle Classes taught per year
32 College campuses where our students have enrolled
Gardens built in the
Los Angeles Area
1867 Pounds of produce distributed per year

As an organization committed to advancing justice, we are working to fight the inequities caused by COVID and against police brutality. Months ago we launched the COVID-19 Basic Needs Response Fund to fill unmet needs of the community, and now we have launched our Youth Justice Fellowship to train youth leaders to dismantle institutional racism and fight against racial injustice.
