Advancing Education

LAWA offers a continuum of tutoring, mentoring, socio-cultural development programs, and higher education financial support for elementary, middle, and high school students in the Charlotte Region. 

Our ultimate goals are:

  • to close academic achievement gaps
  • to improve Latino students’ high school graduation rates, and
  • to increase the number of Latino students that go on to receive degrees in higher education.

  • You don't need a reason
    to help people

  • For it is in giving
    that we receive.
    - St. Francis of Assisi

  • No one has ever become poor
    by giving.
    - Anne Frank

  • “It's easier to take than to give.
    It's nobler to give than to take.
    The thrill of taking lasts a day.
    The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime.”
    ― Joan F. Marques

  • “Giving does not only preceed receiving;
    it is the reason for it.
    It is in giving that we receive.”
    ― Israelmore Ayivor
