On June 24th, 2014, Los Angelitos Board members: Bill Sparks, Janisse Martinez, Josh Devall and Sarah Garfield presented Encinitas Unified School District (EUSD) with a check for the amount of $17,524 to help fund 40 children into the after-school program at Paul Ecke Central (PEC) School in Encinitas for the current school year.  


What started in 2009 as a small after school sports and arts program for low-income children has grown to a full partnership between EUSD, PEC school, the PEC PTA and Los Angelitos.  For the entire school year, 40 low-income children benefit from 5-day a week after-school care at a greatly reduced cost. 


For the last several years, supplementing this after school program and in partnership with high school students from San Dieguito Academy (SDA), Los Angelitos has brought in 12 volunteers (called "Trailblazers") to tutor, mentor and provide homework help to the after-school participants.  Currently, the Trailblazers are working with the after school children twice a week for an hour on reading activities, which is this school year’s academic focus for Los Angelitos"
