Reviews for Laamistad, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer and board member, I see how LaAmistad transforms so many lives - children and families. The after school program - for Latin American and other "first generation" students - provides invaluable tutoring, mentoring, sports, and other personal enrichment programs. The successful results of this program in impacting lives are quantifiably documented. LaAmistad also provides preschool enrollment for numerous children and offers a variety of adult education classes. "English for Successful Living" classes help meet the widespread demand for the acquisition of the English language, so families can live more fulfilling lives.

LaAmistad recognizes that all children have potential and are important to our future but not all children have the support needed to excel in their schoolwork outside the classroom. LaAmistad provides a focused set of after school services primarily for Latino and other "first-generation" children whose parents may not yet be able to assist them with their studies. LaAmistad does not stop there, however, as they also provides and, in some cases, requires similar educations services for the parents such that they can alter the environment for their children in a positive way. The success of LaAmistad can be seen in the children themselves and the standardized test scores they achieve are remarkable.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the children during their after school workday.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

scale it faster to other parts of the country that could benefit.
