Support LNESC Programs

LNESC has developed a program model that services disadvantaged students at all stages of educational development. LNESC delivers a range of services at the elementary, middle, and high school levels with a focus on preparing students to face challenges in their academic and professional endeavors. With our nation’s employers increasingly requiring skilled and highly educated employees, the future productivity of the United States is largely dependent upon the educational success of Latino students.

We hope we can count on your support with a donation to one or all of our important educational and support programs. Together we can continue making an impact on the Latino/a community.
