Current Members

Through Arlington Works! Edu-Futuro is proud to have three talented and dedicated AmeriCorps members serving with our organization in 2013-14:

Kyle Huggins
AmeriCorps Emerging Leaders Program Facilitator
Kyle Huggins grew up in the DC area not too far from Arlington. During his time at the University of Virginia (UVA), he grew to love the Spanish language and decided to make it one of his majors, along with History. At UVA he volunteered with Madison House via its Migrant Aid program in order to use his language ability to impact the local community. He taught ESL classes to adults and worked with youth of immigrant families to help them excel in secondary education. After graduating in 2011, he continued teaching evening ESL classes in his spare time while living in Cincinnati, Ohio. Kyle is excited about being back in Northern Virginia and is looking forward to working with Edu-Futuro and the local youth via the Emerging Leaders Program. In doing so, he hopes to explore potential career options in education and non-profit work.
