Mission Statement

It is the mission of this 2018-2019 Girls Build LA Team to create a long term partnership between Equitas Academy #2 and local Downtown Los Angeles Children's Hospitals. We will create a team of volunteers who will visit patients on a weekly basis, in order to tutor older students and read to younger ones. There are two goals: First, provide support and a sense of community to children who are struggling with their health. Second, this will provide an entry point for young women to explore the field of medicine as a future career choice.
