The Los Angeles Platoon works in the heart of the LA Promise Zone taking action to improve neighborhoods in Los Angeles by improving school grounds and fostering educational opportunities for the youth in underserved neighborhoods. They have partnered with local schools and after school programs to create safe and beautiful campuses in the Promise Zone, supported the LA Beautification Team's large tree-planting initiative and worked with City Parks and Recreation to create community gardens and a safe outdoor space for Las Palmas Senior Center. We will continue to deploy our platoon members as we work towards community youth development.
Each service platoon’s operation is ongoing, and unique to the platoon and that community’s specific challenges. Platoons collaborate with local nonprofits, civic organizations and businesses to ensure community support and engagement.
