Giving Back

holalogo2011colorEducated Nannies has teamed up with Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA)! A percentage of each referral fee that Educated Nannies receives will be donated to this incredible organization. HOLA provides thousands of underserved and at-risk youth with free and exceptional after-school programming in academics, visual and performing arts and athletics.

HOLA offers classes in the critical areas of language arts, math, science, and college and job preparation, as well as opportunities in a world-class youth orchestra and premiere athletic leagues.

HOLA students receive individualized attention from credentialed teachers, staff and volunteers who hold 59 Doctorate, 59 Masters and 193 Bachelor degrees.

Ninety percent (90%) of HOLA students’ families live at or below the poverty line, struggling each day to simply survive, and are highly susceptible to drug and gang pressures.  HOLA offers programming late into the evening, long after schools have closed, providing a safe haven for students. HOLA has evolved into a model program thanks to our many partnerships, including the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and numerous colleges and universities nationwide who help HOLA give kids a chance to succeed.

HOLA’s programs are successful!  For the past two years 100% of HOLA’s students who completed the College-Prep program graduated high school and entered a 2- or 4-year college or university.  HOLA alumni are now attending all the California institutions, including UCLA, USC, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, and also Brown University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Boston College, Barnard, Dickinson, among many others!

Kudos to HOLA for helping all of these students!

Thank you in advance to all of the families who hire one of our Educated Nannies and contribute to the greater good of Los Angeles.
