The greatest benefit of the Compete LA program is our personal coaches. You will be assigned your own coach who will assist in cutting through the red tape of going back  to school. Compete LA coaches will focus on eliminating academic, financial, and social barriers to ease the re-enrollment process. Your personal coach will continue guiding you all the way to graduation. You don’t have to do it alone. We’re here to help.
