About Our Center

The East Los Angeles Community Youth Center (ELACYC) is a non-profit organization that offers hands-on classes, labs, and fun activities in fields of STEAM (Science, Engineering, Technology, Art & Math). We do these through our afterschool program, all-day seasonal camps, and Saturday classes. Additionally, we provide homework assistance, and tutoring to all our members that need that extra helping hand.

Currently, under the COVID-19 Stay at Home order our center remains closed since March 2020. However, to keep our members actively engaged during these difficult and challenging times, we are providing some of our STEAM classes VIRTUALLY and on demand to all our members -at NO COST.  We do have some limited spaces for VIRTUAL homework assistance and tutoring on a first come, first serve bases.

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to inspire and prepare the future leaders in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math, STEAM.

Extended Learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math

We offer course work in the arts and cutting- edge science immersion and make them fun and inspiring topics. We take the approach that just having information is not learning! To truly have that “spark” to be inquisitive and creative, students must have that experiential connection and be hands on and actively involved in what they do so that they can be passionate about learning.
