Summary: This report provides an overview of the conditions of youth ages 11-25 in Los Angeles County, along with specific information on programs and services provided by County government. It is apparent in most parts of Los Angeles County that historic boundaries between government jurisdictions, institutions and programs make it harder rather than easier for youth and families to find the help and support they need. It will take the combined efforts of families, communities, schools, cities, community-based agencies and faith groups to help our youth succeed in school and in life, and to help communities support families so that they can give their children the best possible start.
