Leadership & Learning Program

Do you need service learning hours or volunteer hours and want to have fun? Do you like spending time helping kids succeed? Our mission is to promote self-sufficiency and the successful integration of any Hispanic Americans or any new Americans. With your help, many children that are in contact with us can receive the educational assistance they need to help with their integration to US culture. 

All volunteers 18 and older will have a background check.
