Los Angeles School of Global Studies (LASGS) is a high school located in downtown Los Angeles that calls for an unconventional approach to teaching. The school’s educational approach to learning is based on “an environment that engages, culture that enables, results that matter, and technology that enables,” according to the school’s website.

On the donation, Christian Quintero, Principal of Los Angeles School of Global Studies, said in a statement: “Donations that go directly to the community are very important to our students. I am grateful that Vans, in collaboration with Educare, have been able to deliver technology to our students so that our school community can access the curriculum. .”

Vans’ latest donation comes after Vans donated $1 million to mental health charities in proceeds of the annual Chess Day. The label is also donating a grand prize of $50,000 to the winners of the Vans Custom Culture Art Competition Program. Online voting for the competition will begin on April 26 and the winner will be announced in May. $50,000 will go to the winner’s school art program.
