Description & History

In 2013 the LESGC moved into a permanent Center for Community on Avenue D – 30,000 sq feet of new state-of-the-art program space dedicated to the advancement of girls, and the neighborhood at large.

Mentoring, wellness, arts, academic support and career training programs share space with community programming, STEM initiatives, and environmental and social justice advocacy. The LESGC also runs several social venture businesses that offer job training and employment opportunities for teens and young mothers: The Art+Community Gallery, La Tiendita Fair Trade and Girl Made Gift Shop at the Essex Market, Celebrate Cafe, and the Sweet Things Bake Shop.
