LEC, a 501(c)(3) community development corporation,
offers educational programs that help participants develop or enhance
technical and job skills, healthy lifestyles, and personal growth.
LEC programs empower at-risk youth and socially disadvantaged adults to
leverage education as a tool for overcoming life obstacles and for acquiring
skills needed to survive in the adult world of work. Programs combine
specialized educational tools such as cooperative learning and one-on-one
tutoring with coaching, mentoring, counseling, and other supportive services
that promote a healthy and productive lifestyle. We focus on the individual
learner as the most important element of program design and implementation,
remaining flexible and responsive to individual needs and preferences. This
approach allows participants to transition from the program to professional
life more successfuly.
