We partner with UnidosUS Affiliates and community organizations to build adult education programs that engage, educate, and empower Latinos across the country.

IMPROVING LIVES THROUGH ADULT EDUCATION

Jobs that offer family-sustaining wages, employer-sponsored benefits, and a pathway to economic mobility are accessible primarily to workers with specialized education or training. However, a significant percentage of Latino workers lack the basic skills needed to access gainful employment or enroll in post-secondary education.
