Promesa Boyle Heights
Proyecto Pastoral serves as the backbone organization for Promesa Boyle Heights, a collaborative of 22+ schools, community organizations, and community residents who are working together to build a cradle-to-college and careers pipeline that supports every youth in Boyle Heights. Promesa is leading Community School work at Mendez High School, Roosevelt High School, and Hollenbeck Middle School. As a result of Promesa Boyle Heights strategies at Mendez, the class of 2016 saw a 95% graduation rate (an incredible jump from 34% in 2011).
Additional efforts include College & Career-focused initiatives, a Wellness Campaign and Wellness Series, and an effort to build parent leadership and capacity in East LA.
