Project Description:

LISTOS serves high-risk Hispanic and other high school students who have left the public school system. Last year, LISTOS educated over 150 young people in order to improve their skills in language, math, social studies and science. LISTOS also supports students by offering classes to improve their coping skills as many of the students have numerous life challenges to overcome in order to succeed academically.
