Empowering California's Youth

Educate California's mission is to help families, mentors and nonprofit organizations prepare youth for life after high school.

Through our in-person and virtual LifePrep Academy training sessions, we provide students and their parents with essential knowledge, skills and resources that students need to graduate - college and career ready. Our resources and workshops are vital to the community because they address California’s more than 500:1 student-to-counselor ratio.

By empowering families to advocate for their children and to partner with their children’s school counselors, we help more low and moderate-income youth become the educated and skilled workers California communities need for economic success. Since 1998, we have helped thousands of students plan their future and achieve their goals.


Educate California has partnered with dozens of organizations since our founding. Below are our current collaborative partners.


We appreciate the generous support of our corporate, foundation and governmental partners, whose investments make our work possible. The following funders have supported our mission to empower youth.
