BOLD VISION HISTORY & OVERVIEW
Bold Vision is a multi-sector, multi-year initiative that aims to fundamentally improve the lives of a generation of L.A. County’s Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) youth. Bold Vision began in 2019, when a steering committee of foundation leaders came together to support the formation of an initiative that would forge a new pathway toward success for young people across LA County. The initiative started with an extensive community engagement and policy development process facilitated by Advancement Project California (APCA). Throughout this process, the work was guided by a Community Council comprised of 13 BIPOC-led youth serving community-based organizations from across the county. The community engagement and policy development process resulted in a report that provides an overarching Bold Vision framework that will serve as an equity roadmap for advocates and systems leaders to implement over the next 10+ years. The framework lays out a set of policy and indicator recommendations for realizing a central goal: changing conditions so that L.A. County’s BIPOC youth can thrive.
With the Bold Vision report and framework completed, the initiative now turns its focus towards implementation which the founding Executive Director will help lead.
