Learning is slow but I understand more instructions at my job. ---- R.R., ESL student

When watching our children grow up, it is impossible not to miss the typical primary school dances that both my husband and I left us with beautiful memories of our childhood.  Thank you for continuing to promote Mexican culture in our children through dancing.  (translated) --- R.C., parent

English class helps me to be independent. I can understand my doctor. I feel better when I answer the phone. -- .L.M., ESL student

The organization incorporated in 1996 and received IRS 501(c)3 non profit status in 1997. Programs have expanded through the years to include Adult Education, GED, Citizenship Preparation, After School Homework Help Program, Early Childhood/Family Literacy and an English Intensive Summer Camp for families.
