The 2019-2020 school year started much like any other; students set off to class in the fall, took their holiday breaks, sent in their college applications, and halfway through their second semester, life as we knew it changed. Just as our high school seniors had completed their financial aid applications and college acceptances had begun to stream in, COVID-19 came to our doorstep. Los Angeles Unified School District closed its school doors on Monday, March 16th, and by the following Thursday, Gov. Newsom issued a state-wide stay-at-home order. Our city shut down soon thereafter. The lives of our students, their families, and our entire community were completely disrupted.
Despite an abrupt shift to virtual service delivery for the remaining months of the academic year, Fulfillment Fund reached 2,794 students through our College Access and College Success programs. 94% of our high school graduates were accepted to college, and 95% of our college students were persisting in their postsecondary education or earned their degree.
