LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc. (LNESC) was established in 1973 by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the nation’s largest membership based Latino organization, to provide educational programming to economically
disadvantage students throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico by the efforts of 16 education service centers.

The mission of LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc. (LNESC) is to create lifelong learners and leaders; provide the highest quality educational opportunities possible and seek to develop America’s future workforce by effectively preparing young people for the jobs of the new economy.

LNESC San Antonio hosts the Educational Awards Gala event to honor those individuals and organizations who provide support for our students by creating paths and opportunities for higher education. Thus, establishing a better and greater future for our community.

LNESC San Antonio’s vision for the next five years is to continue to expand programs into more schools throughout the San Antonio region and be recognized as an innovator in developing relevant and impactful curriculum. Currently, the center offers programs that prepare low-income, minority youth to achieve academic success and meaningful community participation.
