The 2016-2020 Countywide Strategic Plan for Economic Development is centered around 7 Goals, developed by Many Voices, with 1 Purpose:
to capture the many voices to propel economic impact and equity.
Through partnership with regional stakeholders, Propel L.A. works to capture the power of many to propel economic impact and equity throughout LA County in ways that touch all of our residents. We empower organizations – as a connector and amplifier – to support their efforts to fulfill the goals and strategies of the Plan.
Destiny Nguyen is a Youth Ambassador with Para Los Niños, and has been with the organization since January 2017. After entering the foster care system at age 15, and facing the overwhelming health challenges of her grandparents with whom she lived, Destiny became disillusioned and misguided in her life direction. While being very smart and intelligent – speaking six languages – life circumstances deterred her off her path, and she eventually dropped out of high school.
