The Los Angeles Promise Zone Initiative is a project created and led by Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office to provide youth with summer jobs as Young Ethnographers. It is an eight-week program that will allow the youth to “engage their neighbors in an assessment of quality of life, to guide decision-making within local government and measure how the Promise Zone is improving lives,” according to their proposal.
“Empowering youth to help learn about and identify their community’s needs is essential to cultivating Central LA’s next generation of leaders, advocates, and neighborhood champions,” said Louie Leiva, community planner for L.A. Promise Zone Initiative, via email.
