Young Readers Program

LNESC’s Young Readers Program (YRP) is an interactive and family oriented initiative targeted to improve reading among grade school level students by instilling a love of reading and building self-esteem. It is a weekly, year long program that promotes reading through a combination of structured learning activities, field trips and student incentives. To encourage their reading at home, participants receive points for each book that they read and record in their program log. At the end of the program, each child redeems their reading points for prizes that include dictionaries, books and other school related supplies. With the help of parents, LULAC staff and other volunteers, the reading coordinator runs a location specific curriculum that utilizes the local community and resources. Some of the titles we use are The Velveteen Rabbit, Reading is a Treasure, Using Your Imagination, and Miss Hunnicutt’s Hat. LNESC runs the Young Readers program with a budget of $9,000 per program site; despite the small budget, Young Readers produces big results, with average reading scores of participants increasing by over 90% over the year!

The Science Corps program provides middle school students with the opportunity to study diverse fields of science through unique hands on experiences. Program participants meet two hours per week to work on labs and experiments that correlate with a given unit. Together with field trips, the students are able to investigate certain areas of science and enrich their knowledge and love of science. Materials consist of hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences that engage participants and prepare and encourage them to pursue science, engineering, and technology in high school and beyond. The curriculum consists of 25 two-hour sessions. The content units are introduced with a case study and focus on a specific career area covered during the modules. These three modules are: Water Works-The Physical Setting, which focuses on careers related to water—its use, conservation, and quality, and issues that arise when dealing with water; How We Work-The Human Body, which focuses on health-related careers, introducing medical science and technology through real-life stories; and Making It Up-The Designed World, which focuses on materials science and engineering careers, including archaeology, polymer chemistry, and failure analysis. All units include a leader guide, hands-on activities, and suggested field trips and speakers.

This program provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree; and low-income, first-generation military veterans who are preparing to enter postsecondary education. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Overview of Organizational Capacity
LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc. (LNESC) was established in 1973 by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to provide educational programing to high-need students throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Throughout 14 education and technology centers, LNESC has served over 500,000 students, sent 150,000 students on to college, and awarded nearly $20 million in scholarships. In 2011, LNESC was awarded over $16 million in federal grant funding to provide high-impact college access services to in-need students through 12 TRIO programs across the United States and Puerto Rico. Through LNESC’s 10 Upward Bound and two Talent Search programs, it is one of the largest providers of college access services to Latino youth through the Department of Education’s Office of Post-secondary Education.

LNESC’s results are made possible by a network of dedicated field staff, top-notch teachers, over 90 school partners, and the support of LULAC - the nation’s largest membership based Latino organization. LNESC works to change lives and build Latino communities, one student at a time.
