“When Stephanie started school I had no part in her life at school. Now with what I am learning at Listo, I know what I can do at home to add to my children’s education at school. I am more involved. Stephanie tells me how glad she is that everyone in the family is attending school!”

- Ana, Listo Parent



“My children love to come to Listo! When there are no classes they all beg to come. My children feel safe here and they love to be at Listo with their friends.”

“I like the Listo program because it helps the Latino community. I have the chance to bring my children here with me while I study. We can learn English and we work on laptops to get computer skills. Our kids are learning reading and writing while we learn English to improve our communication for work.”

- Leonel, parent
