Join Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles County Superintendent of Education Debra Duardo to ensure that all youth have opportunities this summer to Earn, Learn, and Play as they get ready for the academic school year. Highlighted below are opportunities listed that include both virtual and in-person activities and will follow proper COVID-19 health and safety protocols. There are also subsidized and low-cost options:

  • EARN
    • Career exploration and paid internships for young Angelenos between the ages of 14 to 24: Students can find summer job placements in their career fields of interest and earn a paycheck while learning valuable skills. 
    • Opportunities to learn beyond the classroom: Through a range of learning enrichment programs offered both virtually and in-person, students can catch up and prepare themselves for the 2021-22 school year. From STEM to literacy and more, these programs will turn Los Angeles into an academic playground for young people.
  • PLAY
    • Sports, arts, and day camps to explore and play: Young Angelenos of all ages can enjoy the great outdoors, play recreational sports, and discover new worlds through engagement in the arts.





The City and County of Los Angeles are pleased to partner with community-based organizations that have joined EARN LEARN PLAY and dedicated resources to support the initiative this summer:
