The Booker T. Washington Learning Center was founded under the parent organization, East Harlem Churches and Community Urban Center in 1987 by Reverend Leroy Ricksy. Reverend Leroy Ricksy decided to help four children he met on a housing call. Their grandmother was raising these children. Since, the inception of Booker T. several programs have developed and expanded. Our services include an after school program, Saturday reading program, adult education program, summer camp, college preparation and support group, and art therapy. We offer children, teens and adults the extra
that they need in order to find success. There is a very personal approach taken at Booker T. What our families need is what drives us to create and facilitate all of our programs. We are most fortunate in having the most dedicated group of staff and volunteers. They ensure that Booker T. offers quality enrichment programs that move people from poverty and despair to independence and hope.
