Program Description

In 1998, a group of Bolivian parents and the Bolivian Ambassador met with the Superintendent of Arlington Public Schools to establish an academic enrichment program that would meet the needs of ArlingtonĂ¢??s growing immigrant Latino population. Since then, Edu-Futuro has grown to support and empower Latino and other immigrant families through educational programs and leadership development while teaching the broader community about the Latin American culture.

We have significantly expanded our programs, and have grown from a group of less than a dozen volunteers to a recognized non-profit organization with an established central office, a Board of Directors, and over 15 staff and dozens of volunteers dedicated to the mission of Edu-Futuro.
