LALDEF is a wonderful nonprofit organization. It has giving me, along with many other students, the help we needed to search and apply to colleges, offered us tutoring, helped us plan our senior year in high schol. along with many others. We received all this through LALDEF's mentoring program FUTURO. We enjoyed ourself while learning and helping others. We had an awesome experience and the best is that we will have the opportunity to keep doing everything we did for another year.

LALDEF hosts successful know your rights workshops, citizenship drives, legislation advocacy, educational presentations and panels, and coordinates a very successful mentoring program. It is a one-stop shop for new American families.
