The Education Department aims to expand educational opportunities for personal growth and development of Hispanic/Latino community members, from child to adult. 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.
Our virtual tutoring program matches K-12 students who need help in core subject areas with skilled tutors.
To request a tutor, please send a text to 919-697-8073 with the names and ages of the students who need tutoring and we will have a volunteer get in touch with you.
