Who We Are



LaAmistad is a community-supported non-profit organization that works to empower Latino students and families to achieve their ultimate potential. LaAmistad provides a comprehensive, holistic programming structure that incorporates after school tutoring, parent workshops, English language courses as well as educational summer enhancement programs. Since 2001, LaAmistad has helped thousands of students and families on their paths to success.

What We Do

LaAmistad operates a volunteer-led afterschool program that incorporates tutoring and mentoring. The goal being to improve academic performance by catering to the individual educational needs of each child. Educational support is also supplemented by summer enrichment programs and opportunities that provide students with career, cultural and life experiences. LaAmistad also offers counseling and family support services to students and families as part of our holistic approach to family education.

To LaAmistad, parent education is every bit as important as student education. Parents must be equally committed to their student’s education, and must pledge to ensure their student graduates from high school. Our ongoing parent workshops provide parents with the tools and skills necessary to help their student achieve success both at home and at school.

LaAmistad’s 10-week English for Successful Living program offers adult opportunities to learn English. Parents of LaAmistad are also invited to participate in civic engagement opportunities that allow them to establish support groups and a strong community network.

Lastly, LaAmistad is proud to partner with churches and religious institutions to provide students with a safe environment to learn and grow. LaAmistad builds students and families to have strong minds, bodies, and character.

LaAmistad believes that engaging students, families and caregivers together as a cohesive unit establishes a support system where every student is given the opportunity to succeed and thrive academically, physically and personally.
