Learning Works Charter School invites you to our 5th Annual Invest In A Dropout: A Magical Night Turning Dropouts Into Graduates! A fundraiser to raise money for the programs and wraparound services that directly benefit the students of Learning Works.  It is a place where dropouts turn into graduates while facing insurmountable obstacles such as: poverty, low academic achievement, court issues, mental health needs, homelessness, hunger, transportation barriers, child care for pregnant and/or parenting teens, and many more.


All other event details and sponsorship information can be found here. 






In addition to our main campus, Learning Works has created many programs to serve disengaged youth:

  • Learning Works@Homeboy Industries- our satellite campus located at Homeboy’s original site at 1916 East 1st Street in the heart of Boyle Heights.
  • Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program (PPT)- we help teen mothers finish their high school diploma.  Parenting and health support provided by our partners, Mother’s Club and Pasadena Health Department.
  • Hope Works- our drop-in center serving homeless youth ages 17-23, provides food, toiletries, and support services.  We now have a shower located within Hope Works making it truly a refuge from the streets.
  •  artWORKS- studio space down the street with a wide range of arts opportunities including digital storytelling, screen printing, recording/music production, and starting this fall, we have added guitar workshop and fiber and textile arts with our continued partnership with Armory Center for the Arts.
  • GroWORKS- we cultivate a school garden to teach middle and high school students about caring for an inner-city garden.  The garden is integrated into school curriculum by teaching the benefits of nutrition, enhancing career opportunities and inspiring creativity.
