LADF LogoUrban Compass is excited to announce that we are an official grantee of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation! Through an investment of $10,000, Urban Compass will receive vital support for our after-school programs, specifically our literacy and blended learning initiatives. Urban Compass’ literacy and 1:1 iPad programs will continue to support student development in reading through phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, and vocabulary and comprehension activities each week. Their support will also benefit core after-school program areas such as recreation, sports, and enrichment activities aimed at achieving positive educational outcomes for Watts youth and families.

LADF is the official team charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Its primary focus is to support cornerstone programs in Sports + Recreation, Education + Literacy and Health + Wellness benefiting children and families in need throughout the greater Los Angeles region. By leveraging strategic partnerships, the mission is to harness the power of the Dodger brand and the passion our fans have for Los Angeles into a vehicle for positive change in under-served communities.

Stay tuned for more exciting student rewards and incentive programs that will be rolled out all year in partnership with the LADF. Together, Urban Compass and the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation are going to knock it outta the park for Watts kids! Go Dodgers!
