Our education programs work to increase the academic performance of children in pre K-8th grade by building the capacity of parents to engage in their children’s education and understanding the educational system in the United States. We assess the children’s developmental progress and connect them to services that prevent delays in getting them ready for Kindergarten.Helping children develop the right routine, mindset, and attitude early on is essential in their academic growth. We start by creating a one-on-one relationship with their parents to educate and empower them in making decisions that affect their children’s growth.

 

Our bilingual and bi-cultural staff deeply understand the needs of the families in our community and connect them to the resources available within the school system to ensure equitable access to educational opportunities. This leads to greater rates of Latino children entering school and achieving lifelong academic success through their high school and college careers.
