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.
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.
We kicked this year off with our second annual Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) in collaboration with the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services where twenty-three youth ages 14 - 17 from various parts of Austin and Travis County attended the Job Readiness Training at our facility. The training provided the youth with the opportunity to earn valuable work experience while earning financial independence during the summer. The LTCEA plans to host this training each year in the month of February. Registration begins the first week of January. You may call the Austin Travis County at 512-854-4590 for more detailed information.
The 2013 Summer Tutoring Enrichment Program (STEP) is going on now from July 1st through July 26th. Students are being coached in reading and math by great volunteer tutors who have dedicated their valuable time and knowledge to them. Registration for summer 2014 will begin next April.
