COVID-19 STUDENT AND FAMILY DIGITAL RESOURCE CENTER
We are here for you! Our Foundation is currently conducting a community needs assessment for an online distance learning model, as well as a brief Home Technology survey regarding access to technology devices and Internet at home. We are exploring launching and transitioning to a new, online academic enrichment tutoring model to continue to provide free tutoring services to local youth in grades K-12, that need it during this pandemic. With parent/guardian consent, our plan is to have our tutors/teachers provide tutoring lessons through use of a video-conferencing platform, and utilizing Google Classroom to interact with students (Zoom, Skype, WebEx, etc.) and/or the option to screencast lessons.
We realize that not all of our students have access to Internet in their home. Spectrum has agreed to support students during this time with free wireless Internet access. Please follow the link below to access this free service to support learning resources.

SUPPORTING STUDENTS AT HOME
Structuring Your Day
It is helpful to structure your student’s day so they have a routine, work time, and break time. It is also important to spend time with family and friends (virtually) so they don’t feel isolated and overloaded.

WHO WE ARE
Southeast Community Foundation is a non-profit organization enabling students from low-income families, in and around the Southeast Los Angeles Region to get a higher education, securing their future. We give the kids an opportunity to learn to their potential and develop skills that will enable them with a better future. We are truly an educational charity that works to make a difference!
WHAT WE DO
The SEC Foundation provides child support by giving you the opportunity to sponsor a child’s education. We are one of the best children’s charities in Southern California that helps kids from low-income groups to prepare for a higher education serving as the foundation for their future. With the help of our proficient teachers, we truly believe we can be the change in the life of these kids.
SUPPORT OUR CAUSE
Sponsoring a child’s education creates a domino effect, thereby helping the community create a more qualified & skilled working pool for the industries of Vernon. Your donation helps to sponsor a kid and give them a new lease on life and their dream to support themselves & their families, which they would be deprived of otherwise, even if they wanted to.
Call us or come & visit our center, and take a look for yourself how we are helping these kids by giving them a chance for a brighter future.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
More than 90% of your donation directly benefits the kids at our education centers. Unlike other non-profit organizations for children, we use the maximum amount from your donation towards skill-development & higher education for the kids.
Getting the right eyeballs in our community, we feel grateful for receiving several generous grants to aid the kids. However, we believe that we have just begun our journey towards bettering the lives of these underprivileged kids. Even a small donation from you can help a child build a better future for themselves.
