About Us

What is LILTA?

Latinos are the fastest growing cultural group in the United States. This trend has become evident in many school districts across Long Island. However, the statistics indicate that there is a wide achievement gap, which contributes to a high retention and/or dropout rate within this group.

LILTA was established as a nonprofit organization comprised of committed educators and supporters of education, who advocate for high quality education in order to increase graduation rates and higher education enrollment and completion.
