WHO WE ARE
The Leadership Learning Center (LLC) is an after school and summer camp program rooted in a long history of service to the low-income families in Little Havana. Our goal is to create a positive change in our community by instilling our students the positive qualities that build character through self-respect, self-esteem, and love for others. Hope for the future, personal accomplishment, and self-confidence will help these children steer clear of community risk factors.
The LLC is a non-profit organization that receives generous funding from The Children’s Trust as well as from donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals. The ultimate benefactors of this funding and donations are our families. This generosity affords them a greater chance of creating a home where they and their children can thrive.
Additionally, the LLC benefits from the services of dedicated volunteers and professionals from varied walks of life such as doctors, lawyers, media representatives, bankers, educators and many others. A cadre of students from local catholic high schools assist as peer mentors and engage our children in sports and imaginative play. These peer mentors comprise an array of role models for our program participants to emulate.
