Since 2016, the i.am Angel Foundation has partnered with the LA’s BEST after-school program to provide FIRST LEGO robotics teams to underserved students in Los Angeles. Now, we’re ramping up our efforts to bring robotics to underserved youth as two more student teams were created this season.
We are excited to welcome two new robotics teams at Weigand Elementary and Manhattan Place Elementary into the i.am Angel family! The two new robotics teams mark the beginning of the i.am Angel Foundation’s efforts to bring quality STEM education to South L.A.
LA’s BEST provides safe, supervised after-school education, enrichment and recreation programs to L.A. students aged 5-12. The i.am Angel Foundation, founded by musician/entrepreneur/philanthropist will.i.am, seeks to TRANS4M the lives of underserved youth with education, inspiration and opportunity. Together, we are giving LA’s students the tools they need to shape their own futures and the future of their communities.
