Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti recently kicked off Earn, Learn, Play, a new online platform that connects young people with hundreds of city and county recreational, educational and paid internship programs.
“After a very difficult year for our city, we can finally offer our young Angelenos a centralized hub which will give them a plethora of opportunities and options to engage in this summer,” Garcetti said. “Our children deserve spaces in which they can learn, grow and stay engaged. I believe this initiative offers them this and more.”
By visiting the Earn, Learn, Play website, students ages 4 to 24 and their families can enter their zip code and find summer programs and activities including sports leagues, swimming lessons, music and arts classes, and job and internship opportunities.
Earn, Learn, Play is a partnership between the city and county of Los Angeles, philanthropic partners led by the Mayor’s Fund of Los Angeles, and community-based organizations.
“Los Angeles County has one of the most dynamic economies in the world, due in large part to the richness in diversity that makes us the creative capital of the nation,” Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools Debra Duardo said. “The Los Angeles County Office of Education joins the Earn, Learn, Play initiative with great pride in the opportunities that we are creating for all students, including those that have been most affected by the pandemic. We are investing in future generations – one of our most valuable resources.”
The Earn, Learn, Play program connects young Angelenos with career exploration and internship opportunities both virtually and in person through the city’s Hire LA’s Youth program and the county’s Youth@Work program. Earn, Learn, Play helps families find the closest academic enrichment programs available at the L.A. Public Library, the L.A. County Library and approximately 500 afterschool sites through Beyond the Bell and L.A.’s BEST. The website also highlights multiple opportunities to stay active and engaged through Summer Play L.A., Swim L.A. and Summer Night Lights, as well as arts and music programs.
