MORE: The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools was founded in 2007 as the cornerstone of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's strategy to improve education in Los Angeles. It is a unique collaboration between the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District to turn around LA's lowest performing schools and to create a model for doing so district wide. Hollenbeck Middle School is one of the 22 schools involved in the Partnership. The Partnership's plans for Hollenbeck Middle School include new classroom and professional development programs along with engaging instructional activities and events to create a stimulating learning environment and to help students achieve their potential and prepare for high school. Through the Partnership, AEG has officially adopted the Hollenbeck Middle School.

AEG's Season of Giving is an initiative designed to raise funds and generate awareness in support of non-profit organizations working on issues of hunger, homelessness and healthcare. During the month of December, a different non-profit organization will be highlighted during a brief program at the Los Angeles Kings Holiday Ice at L.A. LIVE.
