The Booker T. Washington Learning Center’s mission is to break the cycle of inadequate education, poverty and despair, which pervades East Harlem, while working to maintain a viable and hopeful community.
As the primary operating program of the EHUC, the mission of the Learning Center is to preserve and strengthen the community of East Harlem-El Barrio by offering educational programs including a certified Pre-School Program, After School Program, Summer Program, Young Adult Program, and Adult Education Program. In addition, the Learning Center offers parents and other adults computer training, GED and college preparation, as well as family counseling. In all of our programs we focus on character development through a mentoring relationship. We believe that our children and community members can learn and succeed given the proper resources, opportunity and motivation.
"I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed"
-Booker T. Washington
