Funds raised at this year’s Toast will support Future-Ready Teens programming at the Los Angeles Public Library. This umbrella of programming helps develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills through tutoring, test prep, interview workshops, and technological literacy training. Students also have the opportunity to hone their skills with the Democracy Project, our just-launched initiative that provides resources, mentors, and training to implement community projects — building a generation of informed and engaged citizens.
