In 1998, parent leaders created Educación Para Nuestro Futuro, founded by Escuela Bolivia to meet the educational needs of Arlington’s growing (yet underserved) Latino student population. Today, Edu-Futuro is a multicultural community supporting a diverse group of children, youth, and families – and inspiring young leaders across Northern Virginia. Through its Emerging Leaders Program, low-income immigrant youth take a six-week course focused on leadership development, college prep, and community involvement, and seniors receive year-round, one-on-one advising and support as they prepare for higher education. Most aspire to become the first member of their family to attend college in the US – and they do. A full 100% of last year’s seniors enrolled in college, scholarships in hand. Parents have their own leadership program: a two-month training that strengthens their understanding of the US school system and gives them the skills and confidence to advocate for their children’s academic success. And finally, Edu-Futuro builds bridges across cultures in the broader community, offering after-school and Saturday morning Spanish language classes. Education is the pathway to a successful future. Help pave the way.
