Los Alamitos Education Foundation
Los Alamitos Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization. It is based in Los Alamitos, CA. It received its nonprofit status in 1985.
LAEF (Los Alamitos Education Foundation) is the non-profit partner of Los Alamitos Unified School District in Orange County, California.
LAEF enhances educational excellence by providing 400+ after-school and summer enrichment programs annually, including free elementary world language classes.
LAEF fundraises to support student mental health and wellness initiatives at all nine Los Al schools. With your support, LAEF is now working to maximize the use of Well Spaces across Los Alamitos Unified by developing after-school counseling groups. This way students can receive support on a variety of areas with peers experiencing similar struggles, all while not missing class time.
Since 2017, LAEF has donated over $350,000 to build and furnish Well Spaces at all nine Los Al schools, and support counselor staff salaries.
What is a Well Space? A room on the school campus to improve mental health by creating a calm, safe and comfortable space for students to reset and learn about mindfulness strategies with support from school counselors.
LAEF also funds school STEAM Fairs and grants for STEAM instruction and supplies. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, the arts and math.
And LAEF does so much more! Please visit our website for more information.
