||The Somali Education Center (SEC) is an educational development
program. SEC was started six years ago by a group of volunteers to
provide academic tutoring and enrichment to new Somali students who
were falling behind in schools. SEC is a charitable, not-for-profit
organization that was incorporated as a 501 (c)(3)
The Center provides tutoring in all subject areas for K-12 students. We
emphasize math and science education, along with reading and writing.
We believe that youth enrichment events and opportunities are an
important component in educating our young people.
Another mission of SEC is to prevent involvement in drugs and crime
among Somali youth. In addressing the issues, our STAND (Somali Teens
Against Negligence and Delinquency) program coordinates with parents,
community leaders, professionals such as lawyers and doctors and law
enforcement agencies in providing interactive workshops for character
and social skills development.|
