Sponsorship and Support
“The LLCEC can't be put into words.
To understand it, you must experience it.
To appreciate it,
you have to meet a young person
transformed because of it.
It's beautiful chaos.
It's complexly simple.
It's where the past and the future meet
to create a memorable present.
It's overwhelmingly worth it...”

Dear Community Supporter,
Currently in Kentucky, only 24% of Latinos ages 25-64 have an associate’s degree or higher. According to the CPE, 61% of Latino students graduating from Kentucky’s high schools are not prepared for college. The LLCEC has set out to improve these numbers, and the preliminary data is promising. The program has served 507 students; of those who have completed high school 79% have enrolled in college. LLCEC participants have enrolled in nearly every Kentucky regional/ flagship institution and a variety of institutions within the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. The first LLCEC cohort in 2006 boasts a 82% college completion rate fair exceeding the state average for Latino students. While we have a lot of work to do to ensure all of our students complete high school prepared for college, enter college, and successfully progress, this program has shown promise that, simply put, it works. By combining academic preparation with psycho-social care, students have been able to succeed.
Your support will empower us to continue to serve students as they finish high school and select a college. If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact us via the information provided below.
