Our Purpose
The Learning and Tutoring Center of East Austin (LTCEA) was established in 2007 as a non-profit 501c3 organization for the purpose of providing free tutorial services to help children in academic subjects such as reading and mathematics. One of the most important contributions we can make to our society is to educate our children.
The LTCEA is a proud member of the Texas Association of Non-Profit Organizations (TANO)
Mission Statement
Our mission is to help eliminate illiteracy in our community and to enhance our children's abilities to obtain the academic, social and life skills needed for their future success. 

Our Goals
Although our past summer programs have been successful, we still feel that we haven't done enough for the children of our community to enhance their learning abilities. One of our main goals is to reach out to at-risk youth who are on the verge of dropping out of school. We would also like to expand our services to year-round, such as evenings, after school and Saturday tutoring.


  • The 2015 Summer Tutoring Enrichment Program (STEP) was held July 6 - 30, with sixteen students completing the program and twenty-five volunteer tutors working with them in reading and math. Click STEP to view highlights and pictures of our activities.

  • The next Work-Based Learning/Summer Youth Employment Program will be held at the LTCEA on the last two Saturdays in February 2016. Each day will be six hours of job readiness training for youth ages 14 - 17. We are proud that some of the youth who have attended our training in past years were offered summer jobs with the City of Austin. Volunteer trainers are needed to speak on various topics such as Interviewing and What Employers Want (basic skills, thinking skills, personal qualities). Please submit the online application on the Volunteer page if you're interested in this project.

  • Registration for next summer's program will begin in March 2016. Click Enroll for more information.
