Image for Harmony Project Named Bright Spot in Hispanic Education by the White House

Oct 06, 2015

Harmony Project was recently named a 2015 Bright Spot by the White House and U.S. Department of Education. According to the DOE, "Bright Spots are programs, models, organizations, or initiatives that are helping close the achievement gap....ongoing efforts that are taking place across the country, at the local, state and federal levels, to support Latino educational attainment and excellence."

Recognition of Harmony Project comes after the organization’s 14 years of work to close the achievement gap for Latinos in Los Angeles. The Department of Education notes that “by highlighting and uplifting the work of these Bright Spots, the Initiative seeks to spur innovation and encourage collaboration between them and stakeholders focused on similar issues in sharing data-driven approaches, promising practices, peer advice and effective partnerships, resulting in increased support for the educational attainment of the Hispanic community.”
