Long Beach Unified School District is Los Angeles County’s second-largest school district. It is also in one of the most diverse, metropolitan cities in the nation. In 2017, the school district achieved a milestone in regards to its high school graduation rate, reaching 84.2% after years of trending upwards. With more students graduating high school than ever before, Operation Jump Start seeks to connect all college seeking individuals to college campuses both locally and nationally. Our nonprofit positively impacts low resourced, first generation students facing numerous obstacles, prohibiting them from achieving high school and college success thereafter. Given the recent rise of high school graduates here in the local community, there are more students primed to go on to earn a college degree. Yet, being the first individuals in their family to embark on such a path, making this dream a reality can often be a deterrent. Our committed heroes strive towards creating a future where deserving students have access to a college education regardless of socio-economic status.
