USA: Latin American Youth Center (Washington DC, Maryland)

Latin American Youth Center

Founded in 1968 for the purpose of serving immigrant Latino youth, the Latin American Youth Center has grown from a small grassroots recreation center to a nationally recognized organization serving all low-income youth and families from diverse backgrounds across the District of Columbia and in Maryland’s Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. The Latin American Youth Center operates a regional network of youth centers and public charter schools with a shared commitment to meet young people where they are and help them make a successful transition to young adulthood. LAYC provides multi-lingual, culturally sensitive programs in five areas: Educational Enhancement, Workforce Investment, Social Services, Art + Media, and Advocacy.
