The Los Angeles Service Academy is a program for high school juniors began and run by ICW Director Bill Deverell, LASA Executive Director Elizabeth Logan, and Administrative Coordinator Stephanie Yi with partner institutions Los Angeles Public Library and The Huntington.
Designed as a supplement to the regular school year, the Los Angeles Service Academy provides an intensive introduction to the infrastructure and institutions of greater Los Angeles for high-school juniors who have expressed an interest in public, civic, and civil service. Participants will gain the experience and knowledge necessary to better understand the intricacies – infrastructural, historical, political, economic, and otherwise – of the region in which they live, and will build lasting bonds of friendship, camaraderie, and work experience with a diverse group of peers. Our hope is that, over time, LASA will change the lives and career paths of hundreds of high school students in the region and will become an agent of change and community building throughout Los Angeles. Applications for the 2023-2024 class launch in April 2023.

LASA receives generous financial support from multiple donors and foundations, without which we could not continue providing this exciting and unique educational experience to our high school juniors.
