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.
NEW GRANT & DONATION RECEIVED!
Target recently granted the LTCEA $3,500 to help make sure we have what we need for 2015 to continue our tutoring and youth job training programs. Thanks so much Target for your generous contribution!
Thanks to the Boy Scouts of America Pack 149 of Austin,TX for their generous donation of $1,429 from the proceeds of their holiday bazaar on December 16, 2014 at Spicewood Elementary School. We are so proud of the Cub Scouts for wanting to help the kids of the LTCEA!
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.
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 LTCEA partners with the Austin/Travis County Health & Human Services Department to host a Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), where youth between the ages of 14 - 17 attend a Job Readiness Training, which provides them with the opportunity to earn valuable work experience while earning financial independence during the summer.
The training will be held on two Saturdays, February 21 & 28, 2015; 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Parents can sign their children up on the Enroll page. We need volunteers to help the students
with filling out the applications, collect paperwork, participate with the students in "mock" job
interviews, and help monitor the classroom during the training. Please apply on the Volunteer
page if you're interested in helping.
- The 5th Annual Hike for the Kids of LTCEA sponsored by Goodwill Globetrotting is being planned for May 2015. The hikes in past years have always done us a great service, and we're so grateful for GWGT's dedication to our mission. To sign up for future hikes, please contact Joseph Morgan at 512-902-1722 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Our 2015 Summer Tutoring Enrichment Program (STEP) will be held on July 6 - 31. Online registration will be open on April 1st.
