North Side Learning Center

A “What if...” mini grant of $5,000 enabled NSLC to create a library for both adults and children, encouraging their participants to continue to read within the center and at home. Learn More »

The North Side Learning Center opened in 2009 with a vision for constructive neighborhood development, community bridge building and empowerment through education and entrepreneurship on the North Side of Syracuse, home to a large refugee population.  They understand the value of investing in the future of the community by investing in the parents, who if empowered will empower their children.  Currently over 50 volunteers work with 150 refugees, providing  beginner, intermediate and advance English, Reading and Writing classes.  A “What if…” mini grant of $5,000 enabled NSLC to create a library for both adults and children, encouraging their participants to continue to read within the center and at home.
