Charity Navigator rates charities, issues advisories, and curates lists of organizations working across various causes and issues to help you find and support trustworthy, effective charities that align with your passions and values. Here is Edu-Futuro.
Emerging Leaders Programs (ELP)
We believe that today's students are tomorrow's leaders. ELP I is a free series offered to youth in grades 9-12. Each ELP I series includes workshops that focus on developing professional skills and building confidence to become a leader. Graduates can progress onto ELP II for weekly one-on-one coaching and mentoring services.
Parent Empowerment Services (PES)
Parent Empowerment Services (PES) include all of the programs that Edu-Futuro provides for free to help parents address issues that may be hindering positive family functioning, financial stability, and adaptation to life in the United States.
Workforce Development Services (WDS)
In 2016 we launched our bilingual WDS program to meet the needs of underserved Latino and immigrant Northern Virginians who are seeking to leave low-wage service jobs and improve the economic well-being of their families, now in large part, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What we're doing...
At Edu-Futuro, we believe that every young person deserves to thrive. Without the financial means for early childhood education, afterschool enrichment, private tutors, and college prep services, our region's first-generation students struggle to compete with their more affluent peers.
Navigating adolescence can be challenging for all, especially for immigrant youth who must overcome social and economic obstacles to prosper in adulthood. The families served by Edu-Futuro face daunting educational, economic, and linguistic obstacles.
What we aim to solve: Throughout Northern Virginia, the struggle to improve educational attainment is one of the most serious challenges facing immigrant youth and their families. In 2019, the dropout rate for ELL students was 18% at APS, 30.5% at FCPS, and 19.8% at ACPS —significantly higher, in all cases, than the school districts’ overall dropout rates of 5.6%, 7.4%, and 7.7%, respectively. This is where Edu-Futuro steps in. Click here to know more about our 2-Gen approach, and click here to read more about our work.
