Who We Are

Headquartered in the small town of Wapato in the Yakima Valley of Washington State, the Northwest Learning and Achievement Group (NLA) brings college outreach and after-school enrichment programs designed specifically to reach Hispanic children living in low-income, rural areas. We currently employ more than 150 people including site directors, tutors and administrators who provide programs to more than 30 remote school districts in central Washington, from Walla Walla to the Canadian border.
