Edu-Futuro’s programs support Latino children, youth, and parents by developing their academic skills, leadership ability, and attending to language issues. A strong body of research shows that such programs have a long-term impact on achievement levels, as well as intellectual, social, and development outcomes for children and youth. Edu-Futuro increases Latino families’ self-sufficiency through the development of skills needed for increased leadership and civic participation:
• Parents become comfortable participating in their children’s school activities as they begin to understand their rights and responsibilities as parents in the US and how to navigate the US school system.
• Latino children develop the capacity to read, write, and comprehend in their first language, Spanish, and apply these skills to improve their English literacy. At the same time, children from other cultures reap the linguistic and intellectual benefits of learning a second language at a young age. In this multicultural setting, children learn to appreciate each other’s heritage.
• Latino youth are prepared to thrive in college as leaders who are committed to serving their community through volunteer service.
