LaAmistad, Inc.
June 27, 2012

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.
