INVESTING IN STUDENTS
We are deeply committed to supporting our residents’ academic achievement. We host tutoring and educational programs for children, adults, and seniors. We aim to bridge the performance gap for our youth—in many cases widened during the COVID-19 pandemic—by providing free after-school programs that support our parents, empower our students, and inspire academic success. For adults, we offer a variety of enrichment, literacy, and workforce development workshops.
We ensure these programs are aligned with the City of Santa Monica Cradle to Career initiative.
We provide opportunities to help our residents stay healthy. We offer onsite exercise programs and help connect residents with physical and mental health resources.
Through our community gardening program and work with local nonprofits, we help our residents access and learn about nutritional foods.
Our community green initiatives—from funding transit-oriented development to green cleaning and carbon waste reduction—help improve sustainability across our city. Our Resident Leadership Council promotes empowerment and offers community connection and advocacy opportunities.
Santa Monica and the greater Westside are renowned for their cultural opportunities—in which all residents should have the opportunity to participate. We constantly seek opportunities for our residents to take part in local arts programming.
From workshops to annual art showcases, Community Corp. encourages our residents to collaborate, create and connect with the artistic community.
We strengthen our community by promoting volunteerism, engaging local voices, and hosting emergency preparedness initiatives. We offer a helpline for residents to address ongoing challenges and requests. Strong communities are resilient, supportive communities—and we’re committed to advancing this mission in Santa Monica and the surrounding areas.
