Latin American Youth Center: A Safe Path to Success

September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. To celebrate, we’re spotlighting the extraordinary staff and clients of the Latin American Youth Center, a longtime LISC partner in Washington, D.C. In its 50 years, LAYC has welcomed and served 27,000 youth, many of them recent immigrants, helping connect them to education, mentors, housing, work, mental health services and each other. This kind of work makes an enormous difference in young lives and in our communities, and we’re honored to be part of it: we’ve invested nearly $2 million in LAYC’s people and programs, including financing the purchase of the group’s home base in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.
