Rosa M. García Testifies Before CA Senate Committee
CLP-CYLC Executive Director Rosa M. García testifies before the California Senate Budget and Fiscal Review
Community Learning Partnership (CLP) is a national non-profit organization focused on building a workforce of credentialed, knowledgeable, and skilled leaders to lead and organize for change in their local communities.
CLP’s statewide initiative, California Youth Leadership Corps (CYLC) has launched community change learn-and-earn career pathways in leadership and social change, public and community health, clean energy planning and development, and community planning and economic development.
CYLC is collaborating with its state and local partners to create new career pathways in community-based immigration legal services and language justice to prepare youth to provide critical services to marginalized immigrant communities in California.
We serve historically marginalized students, low-income students, students of color, Opportunity Youth, LGBTQIA+ individuals, immigrants, individuals impacted by the criminal legal system, and students who are eager to make a change in their communities.
CYLC faculty, staff, and students meet with Lisa Salazar, Manager, Youth Development Department, City of Los Angeles.
California Youth Leadership Corps, a statewide initiative of the Community Learning Partnership, equips community college students with the knowledge, skills, and academic credentials needed to become community organizers and young leaders of social justice organizations and nonprofits in local communities across California.
CLP community change career pathways offer certificates and degrees in community leadership, development and organizing along with community work experience.
CLP programs are partnerships between community colleges/public four-year universities and community organizations that offer unique academic educational credentials and community-based work experience.
Through CLP-CYLC programs you can acquire a postsecondary credential, a certificate, or community-based training, paid work-based learning, and more to work with others in creating systemic change in local communities.
CLP students and alums show that another world is possible. Over 1,000 current CLP students and graduates in communities across the country are contributing their vision for a new world and their leadership and organizing skills to create communities that are just, equitable, and humane.

Attending the Global Forum 2022 on Higher Education Leadership For Democracy, Sustainability, and Social Justice was a very empowering experience and has sparked a motivation in me to keep the push against the barriers of oppression. Seeing that there were so many people all around the world working for the betterment of our education systems was grounding. I felt a connection to a more extensive community with people in places I’ve never been to.
Whether you are a young person interested in community issues, a college, community organization, or funder committed to community change, we would love to hear from you!
