Liberty Partnership Program


The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is an after- school, weekend and summer program for middle and high school students at Hostos Community College. The LPP objective is to assist students in developing their academic skills and introducing them to a college environment.

LPP is designed to improve student’s academic aptitude. Our high school credit bearing classes range from Math and Science to non-traditional courses such as Digital Photography. We offer enrichment courses geared to generate interest in the technology sector and STEM related fields. Academic courses are coupled with career workshops and enhancement courses in languages such as Spanish. LPP’s music class introduces students to all instruments. Furthermore, homework assistance is available to all LPP students. The LPP swimming course includes a life guard certification training component that prepares students for work. Additionally, our program participates in the Summer Youth Employment Program and places LPP students in various departments at the Hostos Community College campus.

To broaden the LPP experience, students are exposed to the Arts through various local cultural trips to the Botanical Garden, Los Pregones and attendance to performances in our very own Hostos Theater.

LPP is a partnership between Community Based Organizations, high school students, parents, faculty, businesses, the Department of Education (DOE), and institutions of higher education. Our program is staffed by college faculty, high school teachers, Liberty alumnus, and undergraduate students serving as tutors and mentors. Our middle and high school program partners are: Hostos Lincoln Academy of Science High and Middle school, Health Opportunities High School, and Wildcat Service Corporation.
