About the K-16 Collaborative

The L.A. Region K-16 Collaborative is closing postsecondary attainment and workforce gaps for BIPOC* students by streamlining pathways into health care, engineering and computer science careers. The K-16 Collaborative is leveraging existing initiatives and relationships across L.A. County, uniting higher education segments and institutions, K-12 districts and schools, employers and business organizations, local government, and community partners to amplify our collective impact on equitable degree attainment.
