As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Federal Tax ID#95-4686764), The Learning Centers at Fairplex relies on the generosity of supporters to sustain its programs which benefit the community.

  • Hands-on exhibitions and workshops
  • Interactive school-age programming at the L.A. County Fair
  • Vocational training that helps students find employment
  • Leadership opportunities for high school students
  • Quality early childhood education and parent support services
