Leadership, Education and Achievement with Determination (LEAD) program
The Leadership Learning Center engages students in a rich variety of after-school activities. We serve approximately 250 students from the Little Havana area in grades Kinder through 12.
The program emphasizes academic achievement and personal growth as a path out of poverty. Social skills and leadership qualities are modeled by all staff and embedded into all activities. In addition to homework assistance, students are able to explore creative potentials, have the opportunity to maintain physical fitness, and receive nutritional snacks.
Activities are planned and led by certified Miami-Dade County teachers with the assistance of trained teacher aides and volunteer assistants.
The program addresses the needs of families, as well as students, through the services of its Executive Director, a trained and experienced educator with over twenty years of service in the community.
