Los Angeles Education Partnership / Washington Prep High School
Senior Community School Coordinator
Los Angeles, CA
BrandAn Aldridge was born and raised in Inglewood, California, less than 3 miles from Washington Preparatory High School, where his mother and many of his family members are alumni. BrandAn brings a unique blend of innate passion with his educational background which includes Human Services and Business Administration to his role as Senior Community School Coordinator at Washington Preparatory High School where he wears a number of hats and has his hands in a variety of initiates ranging from High Quality Instruction to Community Engagement. BrandAn has been with LAEP for almost 7 years and previous to working at Washington Prep, BrandAn made a huge impact as Community School Coordinator at San Fernando Middle School. BrandAn's work with youth and his community doesn't stop when he leaves Washington Prep in the afternoon. He founded a very successful Youth Development non-profit Organization that operates the basketball program that he coaches. True to his passion, their motto is #BiggerThanBasketball. BrandAn believes that "your demographics shouldn't determine your destiny." BrandAn is also very active as an advisory Board Member of Champions of Caring Connections, a non-profit organization that supports homeless families and unaccompanied youth in the City of Compton. BrandAn capitalizes the last "a" in his name because when he was a child, his name was always misspelled on his awards from school and sports trophies. Brandan and his wife have been married for 9 years and have 3 amazing children, Briyan(14), Amiya(9) and Ariyana(7) years old. Anyone who knows BrandAn, knows that his family means the world to him!
