Programs

Five core programs work in conjunction with one another to support APCH members in avoiding destructive behaviors by developing life skills and motivation to overcome adversity, make healthy, productive choices, and take advantage of the opportunities that lie before them. APCH's Educational Services include daily tutoring and homework assistance and an accredited LAUSD Continuation High School dropout recovery program. Our Health, Nutrition & Well-Being program provides nutritious meals.
