LAUSD’s Beyond the Bell branch has served as C5 Los Angeles’ primary partner since 1999. Initially motivated by the passionate efforts of John Liechty and followed by the current support of Alvaro Cortés, LAUSD has played an integral role in helping C5LA identify our middle school partners and the amazing young men and women who make up our C5 youth.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has made a commitment that all students within its district have access to high quality, safe and supervised educational, enrichment and recreational programs that engage and inspire learning and achievement beyond the regular school day.

Beyond the Bell Branch (BTB) carries that commitment by connecting students and youth to their home, school and community through a variety of programs that are provided and operated by the school district and its partner agencies before and after school, on weekends and during the summer.
