The Education Department expands educational opportunities for personal growth and development of Hispanic/Latino community members, from child to adult. Its efforts address three main components: literacy and academic achievement for children, youth, and adults; workforce readiness and development; and community education, advocacy, and civic engagement; particularly that which leads toward citizenship and leadership development.
The Economic Development Department focuses on expanding the capacity of Hispanic/Latino community members to make sound, educated financial decisions that build long-term assets and financial security. The Casa for Employment & Leadership (CEL) is part of the Economic Development Program and builds the capacity of day laborers, domestics, and temporary workers to secure steady or permanent employment and a living wage.
