L.A.C.E.R. Afterschool Programs' (Literacy, Arts, Culture, Education and Recreation) mission is to provide underserved youth with a literacy and arts-based after-school program that includes academic support, arts instruction, sports and recreation, and enrichment activities in a safe and caring environment.
Community leader and former State Assembly Member Jackie Goldberg and artist/educator Sharon Stricker founded L.A.C.E.R. at LeConte Middle School in Hollywood in 1995, in response to the community’s need for quality after-school programming in the under-performing schools at that time. Since then, L.A.C.E.R. has opened programs in three other middle schools (Bancroft, Irving and King) and two high schools (Fairfax and Hollywood). This is L.A.C.E.R.’s seventh year at Fairfax High School. The free program provides a safety net for students by offering a continuum of academic, artistic, recreational and supportive services from 6th grade all the way through their 12th grade graduation. Throughout these years, parents, teachers and administrators in the day school look to us as partners in their efforts to keep students safe and in school. L.A.C.E.R. provides a viable alternative to kids getting in trouble and feeling isolated from the community around them. – less
