LNESC Dallas

Established in 1998, LNESC Dallas has established an array of program services in response to community grassroots requests and support from major corporate and governmental partners including 7-Eleven, Inc which donated the site of the original 7-Eleven store to LNESC Dallas in 1998 to house our Dallas Center, and partners such as GM that provides support for our middle school STEM career exploration program (Science Corp), Toyota and Spectrum Communications that together power our Dallas Tech Center, and Nissan that sponsors our annual college/ university campus visitation programs, and the Ford Fund that through our national partnership provides over half a million in scholarships for North Texas Students. However, our biggest sponsor is our partnership with the US Department of Education’s Upward Bound TRIO programs that provides the core of the funding that makes our program possible in North Texas.
