  • Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program


During the month of May, the Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program (LHTP) is participating in Give In May, a national campaign to support organizations serving the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community during AAPI Heritage Month. Supporting AAPI is important to LHTP a minority group amongst the minority Latino and AAPI population we serve in Lincoln Heights. We help develop leaders from all backgrounds in our community and our young women make up over 70% of our leadership roles.


LHTP, JYC, & YUCA have become clubs where our AAPI youth have a voice in their community and has been a bridge for the diverse heritage of our community. In some Asian cultures, elders encourage youth to be “seen but not heard." While our youth may follow this mantra out of respect for their elders, at LHTP we push our youth to be leaders that challenge the status quo and take actions that make a difference. At LHTP, our kids learn to speak up, express their opinions, share their ideas, and learn that it’s okay to have different perspectives. Given the right resources, youth can make a difference and can bring about positive changes in their community.


We hope you choose to support LHTP this year in the #GiveInMay campaign. Donating through GiveInMay.com not only directly supports our mission of lifting our community through youth empowerment, but also raises awareness of our programs and gives us a chance to be a winner in this year’s Give In May challenge. We can’t do this without you. Not only do we need your support, we also need your help to spread the word. Please tell your friends and family why you believe in our work and encourage them to support us too.

LHTP winter session has been running smoothly, as COVID mandates have been lifted even more. Our students have been keeping a good rhythm of studying, completing homework assignments, and improving in all of their school subjects. Our LHTP Directing Staff have been busy observing and coach training some of our newer staff members. They quickly picked up the skills needed to be strong tutors. We’re motivating and encouraging our students for the final months of this school year to push through and to excel!!!


Our JYC & YUCA youth clubs had a few community service events this quarter. We had the opportunity to help assemble thousands of goodie bags to be mailed out to the LA Firecracker Virtual Race participants. Our Youth club members helped twice this year with the LA Marathon water station, in November & March. We saw many familiar faces of our JYC & YUCA friends and alum in the crowd, who were running the race. We were able to take our JYC leaders for their one day retreat. We kept it local this year, in Alhambra. It was a great way to bond some more as we wrap up their year together. Many of our seniors have been applying for Scholarships and eagerly awaiting to hear from the Colleges about acceptances.


Upcoming for JYC, YUCA, & “IP” is celebrating API Heritage Month, Cabinet & Leadership team elections & banquets, possibly a college tour (depending on COVID), and our “Increase the Peace” Green Space Challenge.

LHTP has seen an influx of referrals from our local schools for students who have been struggling with their academics. We've been able to enroll the students immediately and get them the assistance they need. There have been a variety of ways our students have shown progress in a matter of months of attending LHTP’s hybrid tutoring sessions. We’ve had students who were failing some of their classes be able to finish and turn in missing assignments, some are bringing up their grades, other students are learning to read, we have a PPK student learning the English language to prepare to enter into school, and all of our students are learning to have better study habits and routines. LHTP is working hard to help parents identify areas of concern and find the solutions to fill in the areas of decline, voids, and gaps for their children to ensure academic success for all of the students we serve.


This month, we celebrated the Lunar New Year - “Year of the Tiger” with food and fun with our JYC & YUCA youth club members, who have been meeting on a regular basis after school in the hybrid format. A small group of our members helped to volunteer for the Firecracker Goodie Bag Assembly day to prepare for the Virtual Race.


Upcoming events for our members will be the LA Marathon volunteering and our Leadership Team Processing and Elections for the next school year. Also, we have a career workshop scheduled, in March. Along, with many of our seniors anxiously awaiting to hear news of acceptances from the colleges and universities.
