    About Our Program

    The mission of the Learning Together Changing Lives Program (LTCLP) is to improve academic achievement for students in grades K-8, while providing opportunities for enrichment.

    Buffalo State Center for Excellence in Urban and Rural Education (CEURE)and  Best Self Behavioral Health (formerly, CATS) expanded existing partnerships to better serve approximately 150 students at Buffalo Public School International 45.  This partnership is supported by a five-year grant from 21st Century Community Learning Centers.

    Learning Together Changing Lives Saturday Program provides enhanced targeted academic intervention in ELA and math, a broader range of high-quality enrichment activities and significant Social Emotional Development programming with greater alignment to school, district and NYS 21st Century Community Learning Center goals.
