We are very grateful for all the partners who joined both days and helped provide such an invaluable learning experience for the students. Our team is excited to continue working with the students as we develop the East San Gabriel Valley Area Plan and try to make the area a place that the students are proud to call home. / LA County Planning Department
During the 2019-2020 school year, Y-PLAN expanded its reach to Los Angeles County, thanks to a sponsorship from the Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn. Students of Rowland High School are tackling the challenge of researching and proposing ways to make their community a vibrant, healthy, and joyful place to live in — one that youth would be excited to live in for years to come, as they address the project question: How can Rowland Heights attract and retain young people?
