The mission of the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths' social, academic, and career needs.


Emergency Appeal for At-Risk Youth in Montgomery County


After ten years of providing successful workforce services, LAYC’s Maryland division, the Maryland Multicultural Youth Centers (MMYC), lost federal funding for its free GED and job training programs for low-income youth in Montgomery County.


To continue offering life-changing opportunities to some 350 of the most vulnerable youth in the county, we must urgently raise $50,000 by the end of the summer.
