Our Mission

The JCOD Incubation Academy aims to engage and enroll Los Angeles County grassroots non-profit organizations, especially those with BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, or justice-involved leadership, that have historically been providing services to justice-involved people but have faced challenges obtaining government contracts and funding.

The program seeks to build the capacity of these organizations and equip them with the best practices in non-profit management through 15 weeks of virtual training sessions and a year of support in the form of technical assistance and peer advising.

Target Organizations:

check circle icon Non-profit, 501(c)(3) status, and/ or faith-based organization
check circle icon Grassroots and small CBOs (less than 50 full-time employees)
check circle icon Diverse leadership (Black, Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQIA+, formerly incarcerated)
check circle icon Priority given to organizations serving the highest need areas CBOs offering a wide range of services and offer geographic diversity

***To be considered for the 7th cohort of the JCOD Incubation Academy, please submit your application by July 31, 2024.***
