On October 29, 2016, we will host the PATapalooza festival to celebrate five years of Preparing Achievers for Tomorrow (PAT), an initiative whose grantmaking investments have supported the social and emotional development of more than 12,000 South Los Angeles young people.on.
The event will allow our youth to showcase their talents while giving the community an opportunity to see PAT partner programs in action and learn how they can support these organizations. We are also partnering with Los Angeles Southwest College to connect the college with our grantee partners and youth. The goal of PATapalooza is to celebrate the achievements of our youth and PAT partners while building partnerships, collaboration and community engagement with organizations making a difference in the lives of young people throughout South L.A.
