Education


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.
