Success Stories
There’s no right way for our programs to work. Here are a few of the stories about how we made a difference in the lives of our students.
About Us The Latino Student Fund

The Latino Student Fund (LSF) was founded in 1994 to address disparities in access to education for Hispanic students in Washington, DC, and has since served more than 4,000 youth across its programs.

 

  •  Our Mission

    The mission of the LSF is to provide opportunities for a strong academic foundation for underserved PreK-12th grade students of Hispanic descent and their families to promote higher education and professional leadership.  The organization provides year-round, out-of-school-time programs for low-income, at-risk students and their families with the goal of increasing levels of educational attainment in the community.

  • Our Goals

    • Provide academic support for at-risk PreK-12th grade students
    • Alleviate barriers to higher education among first generation youth
    • Empower Latino families to serve as strong advocates for their children

What we do... Events' Calendar
BUILD A STRONG FOUNDATION By educating families through English classes, school workshops, and computer training, we make learning accessible for every generation. PROVIDE AN EARLY START We provide programs for students starting in preschool to help combat the short- and long-term positive effects on children's cognitive development that come from lack of quality education. SUPPORT THE FUTURE Our programs don’t stop once students graduate high school. We create a network of peers and mentors that our students can rely on whether it’s their first year of middle school or first year of college.
Sponsors and Supporters
Schools

The LSF works with several independent and parochial schools in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia to support Latino youth and to encourage multicultural and socioeconomic diversity in PreK-12th grade education. Our efforts are to ensure that Latino youth have access to the best educational opportunities that the Washington, DC Metropolitan area has to offer. LSF Member Schools benefit from the cultural and linguistic support of LSF staff and supporters. In addition, Latino students that attend LSF Member schools are eligible to apply for tuition support through the LSF Scholars Program.
