Backside Learning Center

The Backside Learning Center (BLC) is located at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY. Our goal is to improve the community on the Backside by providing the population with an opportunity for education.

The Backside population is largely comprised of migrant laborers from Central and South America. This population doesn't have much access to formal education and often our clients haven't ever had the opportunity to attend classes on a regular basis. It is also difficult for our students to build a solid community due to frequent relocation from track to track. We are a volunteer based organization dedicated to providing our clients access to a library and computer lab as well as ESL, citizenship, art, computer and music classes. All classes have rolling admission to accommodate the transient lifestyles of the population we serve.

Enhance the lives of equine workers by providing education, life skill resources and community.
