LaAmistad, Inc. serves first-generation students and families through its two major
programs, LaAmistad After School and LaAmistad English for Successful Living. Both
of these programs are being replicated across the United States, reflecting their
extremely successful Atlanta-based pilot programs at Peachtree Presbyterian Church
and Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church.
For program replication, LaAmistad, Inc. provides start-up materials such as operations
manuals and a comprehensive welcome package (comprised of handbooks, flyers, forms,
posters, etc.), plus support from LaAmistad, Inc. staff. Support includes site visits
to facilitate administration and volunteer trainings, unlimited consultation by
phone, the right to copy any and all materials and procedures, and a webpage on
LaAmistad, Inc.’s website.
The benefits and support for replicating programs in the Atlanta area is even greater--additionally
including invitations to our Parent Partnership Program, our Parent Resource Center,
and the chance for LaAmistad After School students to attend LaAmistad’s Animate
Summer Camp at the Westminster Schools. All of this support results from more than
a decade of successful programming at LaAmistad’s pilot programs in Atlanta.
