Lifting our community through youth empowerment
What we do:
The Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program (LHTP) is a grassroots non-profit organization with a mission to serve the underserved and overlooked youth of East Los Angeles. We focus on making a local and significant community impact. We do this through a combination of tutoring services to close the academic gap, and youth programs to prepare teens for life after high school.
LHTP provides after school homework and tutoring services to over 500 K-8th grade children annually in East LA communities of Lincoln Heights, Boyle Heights, Chinatown and El Sereno.
LHTP also provides youth leadership and development training to over 600 teenagers each year through Youth United for Community Action (YUCA), Junior Youth Club (JYC), and Increase the Peace (IP) youth advocacy committee.
