Pursuing your dream college is challenging for anyone. Now, imagine being the first in your family to do so, grappling with financial and language barriers at the same time. Working with under-resourced Latino and immigrant families throughout Northern Virginia, Edu-Futuro offers free, Spanish-English bilingual programs to inspire a new generation of leaders. Each year, close to 700 students work toward graduation through the multi-stage, after-school Emerging Leaders Program (ELP): middle schoolers build STEM skills through hands-on robotics; high schoolers engage in leadership development and mentorships; and rising seniors receive year-long support as they navigate college applications and enrollment. A suite of programs — from workforce development to parenting classes — empowers parents too and helps them secure employment, adapt to life in the US, and fully advocate for themselves and their children.
