LaAmistad's mission is to support Latino and first generation students and their families through tutoring, mentoring and programming that promotes academic, physical and personal growth. To accomplish this, LaAmistad has created an award-winning after school program, LaAmistad After School. The program places a heavy focus on tutoring the students to improve academic success and also on providing mentoring.
