ORGANIZATION: Latin American Youth Center

The College Access Mentor Program provides a unique opportunity for community members to give back to their community. Mentors provide encouragement and guidance to help youth cultivate and leverage their skills through academic development and college-readiness support and collaboratively address youths' personal needs or concerns. The program will fit into the mentor's and students' schedules as services will be offered after school, in the evenings, and on weekends. Much of the mentor/mentee contact will be scheduled individually that works for both mentee and mentor. Total program contact hours are at a minimum of 4 hours each month.

LAYC serves any youth eligible for services regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or gender. Spanish is not a requirement for this volunteer opportunity!

About Latin American Youth Center


1419 Columbia Road NW, Washington, DC 20009, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths’ social, academic, and career needs.


Since our founding in the late 1960s, LAYC has grown from a small grassroots recreation center into a nationally recognized agency serving all low-income youth. Each year LAYC serves over 4,000 youth and families through youth centers, school-based sites, and public charter schools in the District of Columbia and Maryland’s Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties as the Maryland Multicultural Youth Centers (MMYC).

We believe in a future where all youth pursue their dreams, reach their goals, and acquire the skills and self-confidence to live a life of purpose, connection, contribution, and joy.
