Preparing Achievers For Tomorrow

Preparing Achievers for Tomorrow (PAT) seeks to create a brighter future for the youth of South Los Angeles and the South Bay by improving academic achievement, decision-making skills and self-esteem through sports, music and recreation. PAT is a five-year project made possible by a $12.5 million legacy gift from an anonymous donor whose life was devoted to helping others and who valued the opportunities that music and athletics can provide young people.

Since its launch in 2011, PAT has given more than $8.5 million to a diverse spectrum of organizations dedicated to transforming young lives and shaping the next generation of leaders and scholars. Through music, surfing, poetry, performing arts, soccer, flight instruction and more, PAT’s partners have transformed the lives of young people and worked to build the capacity of nonprofits in South Los Angeles and the South Bay to ensure these programs continue to impact children for generations to come.
