Courses

We offer a hands-on learning experience that represents a radical departure from traditional education for low-income Hispanics, as we empower them to take education into their own hands. Our Courses and Workshops are based on our 9-year experience working with school districts and thousands of Hispanic parents.

AULA VIRTUAL (Virtual Classroom)
As part of our educational portal we have created a Virtual Classroom section where we provide quality information and resources that can help any one to learn and practise the skills they need to make the most of everyday life. Short lessons allow users to learn specific tasks, for exampla: How the American school system works, How to use a tablet, How to fill out forms online, etc.

WORKSHOPS
Leadership Workshops
Groups of 6 to 8 parents meet twice a week for two hours to learn about empathy, problem solving, teamwork and leadership. Workshops are held at the schools or at home where parents have the added advantage of childcare. Moderated by facilitator. Cell phone or smartphone required. Read more.

Family Workshops
We  collaborate with several agencies to offer workshops to raise awareness about bullying, domestic violence, early teen pregnancy, substance abuse and other important topics. Schools invite families to participate in one-hour workshops where they share experiences and offer solutions. These Workshops are free of charge.
