Being the Catalyst for Change In Our Community
The Peoples Foundation team, has partnered with, aligned to, and works with some renowned national organizations all in an effort to be the catalyst for change in our community. Our goal is to inspire youth from under-represented communities to be involved in technology and STEM pathways. The future success of our young generation will depend on them being a full participating member of the Innovation Economy. We've partnered with, and work with organization like Freedom Writers, CODE2040, Young Innovators Fair (YIF), in order to bring the full immersion and access opportunities technology offers to Lompoc Valley youth in innovative and strategic ways. Also see below the stories, success, mission and reach of these organizations below.

It's just one example of how we are working to get the youth of our community involved with STEM/Technology pathways that will enable them to be full participants in the Innovation Economy.
Peoples Foundation is proud to be working hard for our future...ALL children. In a community it's vital to know that: "It'll take a willage to raise a child." It's why our programs are being brought together for all children of Lompoc, Valley. Our goal is simple...change and enhance the future of the children in our community. We've developed programs that bridges the GAP...the GAP between what's being provided by local educators and whats not able to be provided due to resource and other constraints.
