The Pasadena/Altadena Coalition of Transformative Leaders (PACTL) serves as the transformative catalyst and community voice for unifying diverse interests of youth, parents and professionals to shape social policy that promotes a caring community by creating a safe and loving space for collective wisdom and action.

Our mission is “to provide activities and services that strengthen our community through modeling an inclusive approach to support healthy families and parent/caregiver  involvement. These activities and services build on inherent cultural wisdom and support social policy that promotes a caring community by creating a safe and loving space for collective wisdom and action.”

The Pasadena/Altadena Coalition of Transformative Leaders decided to incorporate in December 2010 and formed a Board of Directors that include professionals, Parents, Community Residents and Youth.
