CALO’s unique approach to culturally relevant, project or campaign based learning ensures that all the students work will ultimately contribute to the organization’s mission to create a sustainable East Los Angeles/Boyle Heights. Students will identify social, economic, environmental issues that currently affect their community and develop campaigns to develop youth/community driven solutions.  Past campaigns our students have worked on include: Civilian Oversight of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department, the Save Mariachi Plaza Coalition, and Exide Community Lead Remediation efforts.
