El Centro de Aprendizaje is the Mexican non-profit that runs the tutoring and mentoring program that is known in English as The Oaxaca Learning Center (TOLC). Information in Spanish about the program is found at their website: iiacaprendizaje.org
The mission of The Oaxaca Learning Center (known in Spanish as Centro de Aprendizaje) is to help provide underserved Oaxacan youth with the confidence, skills, and tools to envision a new future and realize their dreams. Due to widespread poverty in the state of Oaxaca, many young people are unable to complete high school or continue to higher education. The Oaxaca Learning Center assists low-income students, ages 14 to 24, to succeed academically and to gain confidence in developing and meeting their own goals.
At The Oaxaca Learning Center, students receive academic tutoring—in math, physics, chemistry, and English--, mentoring, and personal support within a holistic learning community. Staff and tutors are from the same background as the student; many are themselves graduates of the Center, serving as inspiring role models. The objective of the program is to develop in the students Skill, self-confidence, and leadership (see more in the About section)
