Preparing California's Youth

Educate California's mission is to help families prepare 14-24-year-old 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 450:1 student-to-counselor ratio.

Since 1998, we have helped thousands of students plan their future and achieve their goals. We measure and evaluate our impact on the youth we serve through pre- and post-workshop surveys. To date:


feel more confidence preparing for college, careers and their future


feel more knowledgeable about financial literacy and managing their money


feel more knowledgeable about financial aid options and paying for college


students and parents would recommend LifePrep Academy for other families


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.
